Boston, Massachusetts 

Committee and Committee Staff : Chairperson Caruso; 
Trustees Bell and Matthews; Mrs. Fontaine, Administrative 
Secretary 

Committee Member Absent : Trustees Carlin and Zervas

Chairman Caruso convened the meeting at 11:00 a.m. 

President Knapp reviewed last year's Committee 
activity. The regular quarterly reporting is now on 
schedule. The Committee asked that quarterly reporting be 
revised to be more inclusive and not restricted to em- 
ployment statistics. Other areas which were suggested to 
be included were admissions, vendors, student and handi- 
capped statistics. 

He then reported on student statistics and noted that 
the Boston campus has an overall 18% minority enrollment 
which is the highest among any public institution in the 
state. The Amherst campus overall is somewhere around 
5%. There was a major increase at the Medical School, 
approximately 9% of the incoming class. This he said is 
seen as a good sign that the campuses are paying attention 
to these issues. The Amherst campus has also set aside a 
fund of $250,000 to encourage minority hiring in the 
faculty. 



Moving then to the next agenda item, Assessment of 
Incomplete issues and work, the Committee discussed Vendor 
Reporting. Associate Vice President Willits reviewed the 
University's Purchasing Policy, summarized the bid process 
utilized if a vendor is needed to provide services and 
reported on new state law that splits out minority owned 
companies and their acquisition of contracts. During the 
course of the discussion reference was made to a report 
concerning Minority Business Development from University 
Vice President MacArthur to the Board of Regents. Copies 
of that report were requested to be provided to the Com- 
mittee members. 

President Knapp then spoke about the Committee's work 
last year on the Amendment to the current Affirmative 
Action/Non-Discrimination Resolution and the concerns 
raised about whether the issue of sexual preference should 
be included. Counsel Searson pointed out what was 
required to be included in accordance with Federal and 
State Law. This item was tabled and Associate Vice 
President Willits was asked to coordinate with the three 
campuses and to bring back to the next meeting two 
versions of the document. 

Trustee Matthews noted that the Affirmative Action 
Plans she had seen spoke of hiring and asked if there were 
other documents available which address other areas such 
as admissions, academics and procurement. 

There was a discussion of the admission statistics in 
particular the acceptance, retention and graduation sta- 
tistics . 

Trustee Bell then raised a question about efforts made 
to make the 250 Stuart Street Building accessible for 
handicapped individuals. It was reported that funds have 
been made available to rectify the situation. The ele- 
vator problems were then highlighted and a suggestion was 
made to enlist the help of the student council in putting 
notices in the elevators 

It was then reported that a scholarship fund had been 
set up in memory of Thelma Johnson, Affirmative Action 
Director at the Amherst Campus. 

The meeting adjourned at 12:15 p.m. 

Cynthia A. Fontaine 
Administrative Secretary 
to the Board of Trustees

Chairperson Caruso convened the meeting at 12:15 p.m. 

After discussing the Equal Opportunity Resolution , the 
Committee changed it to make it more readable. It was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve the 

Equal Opportunity Resolution set forth in 
Doc. T85-086A. 

The next item considered was the Affirmative Action 
Resolution . After a lengthy discussion, the resolution 
was modified to strengthen the tone in order to have a 
stronger statement of policy. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 
Affirmative Action Resolution set forth 
in Doc. T85-087A; which resolution shall 
replace that contained in Doc. T79-035, 
approved by the Board May 2, 1979. 

The next item was the Equal Opportunity in Employment 
Report . Associate Vice President Willits said that the 
data was complied as of August 31st and, therefore, did 
not include faculty employed this semester. A discussion 
ensued about the accuracy of the data in the report. For 
future reference in preparing reports, the Committee asked 



that percentages be included and the statistics complied 
for minority statistics not include white females. 
Trustee Matthews again expressed her interest, in receiving 
information concerning retention of undergraduate and 
graduate students. 

The last item discussed was the Minority Business De - 
velopment report. The Committee requested additional in- 
formation specifying vendors, the amount of funds awarded 
to vendors and percentages of the total amount awarded. 

Under new business, Trustee Bell asked President Knapp 
to supply him with a letter addressed to Edward Rossi at 
the Board of Regents requesting an allocation to have the 
front doors at the Downtown Center accessible to handi- 
capped students. 

There being no further business to come before the 
Committee, the meeting adjourned at 1:35 p.m.

expressed the regrets and sincere condolences of the Board to 
Peter Healey on the death of his father and former colleague 
and Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Joseph P. Healey. The 
Board then observed a moment of silent prayer in memory of 
Joseph P. Healey. 

Chairman Quinn announced the impending departure of John P. 
Howe III, Vice Chancellor and Academic Dean at the Medical 
School. Dr. Howe, who was leaving to accept the position of 
President at the University of Texas Health Science Center, San 
Antonio, Texas, then addressed the Trustees. Chancellor 
Tranquada added that Dr. James Barry Hanshaw was appointed 
Interim Vice Chancellor and Academic Dean. 

The first matter of business was the Hospital Corporation 
which had been discussed at several meetings before this, at 
the October Retreat and most recently at meetings of the 
Executive Committee. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To approve the following membership of the 
Board of Directors of the Hospital 
Corporation at the University of 
Massachusetts Medical Center: (also known 



^ 



as University Health Systems at New 
England) 

Ex officio members:

who shall be Chairman of the Board of 

Directors. 

Three other members of the Board of 

Trustees to be named by the Chairman of 

the Board of Trustees.

At least three and no more than five 

individuals to serve as directors and 

community representatives chosen from 

the following list:

The next matter to be considered was the recommended 
Administrative Reorganization at UM/Worcester . It was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED: To eliminate the titles Chancellor/Dean 
and Provost at the University of 
Massachusetts at Worcester and to create 
the titles Chancellor, and Dean of the 
Medical School/Provost and of the 
University of Massachusetts at Worcester. 
(Doc. T84-123) 

The next item was Student Governance at UM/Boston which had 
been recommended by the Executive Committee. Chairman Quinn 
said that a hearing was held on January 4, 1985 where the 
Committee heard from the student group. Having heard the 
arguments and read the material put before the Committee, the 
Chairman asked for a poll of the Executive Committee. The 
Executive Committee returned a unanimous vote to reaffirm its 
recommendation to the Board that the Student Senate be 
established as originally proposed. 

Trustee Gomes made a motion to amend Article 15 that SAC 
remain fully functioning on an interim basis until the first 
meeting of the Student Senate. It would be the responsibility 
of the newly elected members of the Budget and Finance 
Committee to assist in preparing this budget. Chancellor 
Corrigan noted that none of the amendments had been discussed 
by any group on campus including the Committee which brought 
forth the Student Senate document. Each of these amendments, 

-2- 



he said, create issues for the campus which the students and 
faculty deserve the right to view. On a vote of three in favor 
and seven opposed the amendment was defeated. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 



( 



VOTED: To reaffirm the Executive Committee 

recommendation of November 19, 1984 that 
the Board establish the Student Senate at 
the University of Massachusetts at Boston 
and to approve the Constitution of said 
Senate as set forth in Doc. T84-118 as 
amended . 

The next matter was the Dismissal of an individual at the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst. It was moved, seconded 
and

Massachusetts at Amherst and to dismiss 
him from the University. 

There was a motion made by Trustee Keller to request 
Chancellor Corrigan to convene a committee of appropriate 
representatives for the purpose of considering recommended 
changes to the Student Constitution at Boston. There was a 
discussion and the motion was defeated. 

At 2:50 p.m. it was voted to go into Executive Session to

Chairman Quinn convened the meeting at 2:15 p.m. The Board 
then considered and approved the minutes of the December 5, 
1984 meeting as written. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To approve the minutes of the December 5, 
1984 Board of Trustee meeting. 

Chairman Quinn began his report by noting that in a survey 
he requested of the Chancellors and the President the advertis- 
ing budget for the University appeared to be unbalanced in the 
publications used and he thought other publications should be 
found . 



• 



President Knapp mentioned the budget for higher education 
was a level funded budget except for collective bargaining and 
personnel costs. He also added that there was some discussion 
of a supplemental budget in April which would provide 12 



million dollars for equipment for nursing and engineering pro- 
grams as well as increasing student aid funds. 

r 

Commenting on the impact of the Reagan budget on financial 
aid he said it appears that well over 50% of the students at 
the Amherst campus and somewhat fewer on the Boston campus will 
be adversely affected by the Reagan budget. There are three 
provisions within the Reagan budget which have an impact. At 
the Amherst campus thirty-one to thirty-seven percent of the 
students should be affected by the $32,500 limit. Trustee 
Keller added that a group of students, sponsored by Students 
Advocating Financial Aid, would be going to Washington to lobby 
in opposition of the financial aid cuts. 

He concluded by reporting on several events which have 
occurred since the last Board meeting - the Troy Alumni Award 
Dinner and a reception for new legislators which was co- 
sponsored by alumni legislators. He announced the upcoming 
Healey Memorial Service to be held March 7 in the Healey li- 
brary as well as hearings scheduled in March and April before 
the Education Committee which will deal with a wide range of 
issue-s including governance. 

Chancellor Duffey announced the award of a grant of nearly 
one-half million dollars from the National Science Foundation 
to the Department of Math and Statistics and the School of 
Education. The Departments are working together to train high 
school math teachers to use micro-computers for instruction and 
to develop improved materials for teaching mathematics in the 
secondary school. The project over several years will involve 
intensive summer courses for math teachers and returning to the 
campus each month during the academic year to consult on the 
implementation of various new approaches to the teaching of 
mathematics. He noted distinguished lecturers who have visited 
the campus including Paulo Friere, Maya Angelou, Elie Weisel 
and Dr. Hans Suyin. He concluded his report by announcing that 
the campus had signed an agreement with the University of 
Buenos Aires in Argentina to begin collaborative projects in 
academic areas involving professors and graduate students. 

Chancellor Corrigan commenting on the financial aid situa- 
tion said that the $4,000 cap on funds coming from federal 
sources is much more pernicious on its influence on the cam- 
pus. The $4,000 includes all sources of federal aid including 
work study money and approximately 16% of the students who are 
on financial aid at the Boston campus will be affected. He 
announced that the campus tenth year accreditation visit will 
be conducted from April 21 to April 24. The campus also re- 
cently co-sponsored a Conference in Northern Virginia on the 
problems in Northern Ireland. In summation, he said several 
equipment grants, awards and fellowships to faculty members had 
recently been received including $100,000 from the Combined 
Jewish Philanthropy to Survey Research to conduct a Jewish 
population study which is a ten year follow up of a study done 
by the campus . 

-2- 



Chancellor Tranquada said the Medical School too would be 
seriously affected by the Reagan recommendations already ad- 
dressed. Further, zero funding was recommended for all of the 
health manpower programs. This would affect not only student 
aid in the form of exceptional financially needy grants, the 
national health services corp, and other programs. He said 
that the students at the Medical School elected to wage a sig- 
nificant letter writing and personal contact campaign with 
federal legislators. He concluded his report by assuring mem- 
bers of the Board that there was no firm foundation for the 
particular facts recently reported in a story about the New 
England Life Flight crash recently aired on Channel 5. He said 
the National Transportation Safety Board will not and has not 
released its findings for three to six months. 

Trustee Troy then gave the report of the Committee on Aca- 
demic and Student Affairs which had met on January 23, 1985. 
The first items considered were Appointments with Tenure. 
It was moved, seconded and 



VOTED To concur with the President in his 

appointment of Gerald Nash as Professor of 
Pathology with tenure at the University of 
Massachusetts at Worcester. (Doc. T85-002) 



and, 



VOTED; To concur with the President in his 

appointment of William G. Shepherd as 
Professor of Economics with tenure at the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst. 
(Doc. T85-003) 



The

next item was

VOTED: To establish, subject to the concurrence 
of the Board of Regents, the Master of 
Science in Nursing Program at the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts at Boston as 
described in Doc. T85-001. 

The final item for discussion by the Committee centered on 
Presidential Evaluation by the Board of Regents. Trustee Troy 
noted some differences of understanding by the two Boards and 



-3- 



said that after discussing these and other considerations, it 
was the consensus of the Committee that it would be unwise to 
simply challenge or protest the differences but to seek for a 
general clarification and resolution of undeclining differences 
between the Regents and their staff on the one hand and the 
University on the other. For this reason the Committee rec- 
ommended that the Board hold a Retreat in the near future to 
attempt to examine all these problems and to put them into a 
mature perspective for the good of the order. He also asked 
that President Knapp provide information concerning activity 
nationally about university systems and the relations between 
coordinating boards and the boards within the system for dis- 
cussion at the time of the Retreat. It was asked that Mr. Troy 
prepare his remarks in printed form and distribute them to the 
Board of Trustees. 

To the point of the Retreat, Chairman Quinn said he would 
take steps to arrange another within the next few months de- 
pending on what date can be arranged to the satisfaction of the 
almost unanimity of the Board of Trustees. 

Trustee Kurzman gave the report for the Committee on Budget 
and Financial Affairs. He said the Committee met jointly with 
the Executive Committee for the purpose of discussing the Self - 
Insurance Program at UM/Worcester . It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED ; To authorize the Chancellor of the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts at Worcester, to 
issue requests for proposal for a fund 
trustee, a claims management firm, and an 
excess insurance broker pertaining to 
a program of self-funded medical mal- 
practice insurance, all as set forth in 
Doc. T85-007. Further approval of the 
self-insurance plan by the Board of 
Trustees shall be required prior to 
accepting any said proposals or entering 
into any contractual arrangement relative 
thereto. 

Continuing with the report of the Committee on 
Budget and Financial Affairs, it was moved, seconded 
and 

VOTED ; To establish the Computer Center Trust 

Fund at the University of Massachusetts at 

Worcester, which self-supporting trust 

fund shall have as its purpose the 

provision of computer related^ services to 

external organizations as related to the 

primary programs of instruction, research 

and public service. Expenditures will 

include all operational and development ^ 

costs of the trust, all as described in 

Doc. T85-005. 



-4- 



The next item was the establishment of the F.M. Dowd 
Memorial Scholarship Fund at UM/Amherst. Trustee Zervas asked 
that in view of the crunch in financial aid if there was a way, 
in the future, to be less restrictive with the curriculum limi- 
tations. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED ; To establish the F.M. Dowd Memorial 

Scholarship Endowment Fund at the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts at Amherst for 
the purpose of awarding a scholarship 
annually to an entering full-time freshman 
who is the son or daughter of a current, 
permanent employee of the Raytheon Company 
who is majoring in mathematics, any of the 
physical sciences, or any branch of en- 
gineering; the award shall be in the 
amount of $4,000, derived from the income 
of the fund donated by the Raytheon Com- 
pany, income in excess of $4,000 
will be added to the fund; if there is a 
shortfall Raytheon will make up the dif- 
ference. The selection of the scholarship 
recipient will be made by the 
Department of Electrical Engineering at 
Amherst as set forth in Doc. T85-006. 

The next item discussed by the Committee was the Internal 
Audit Report which was a quarterly information report. 

The Allocation of Trust Fund Interest was then approved. 
It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED ; To allocate an additional $1,000 from 

Trust Fund Interest to the Amherst campus 
for the provision of bus service to and 
from Springfield. 

The next item was the Transfer of Land at the Amherst cam- 
pus. The letter of February 26, 1985 to Chancellor Duffey from 
Barbara K. Griffith, Chairwoman of the Town of Amherst was 
distributed. Mr. Richard Minear, Selectman from the Town of 
Amherst and Mr. Jay Harper, Capital and Operations Coordinator 
for Consent Decrees, Office of Administration and Finance and 
Department of Human Services were introduced. 

Mr. Minear underlined the concerns of the Board of Select- 
men as set out in the letter of February 26. The concerns 
focused on the issues of siting — one of the two proposed 
sites was requested by the Town to be eliminated — and of 
insufficient information received relative to the proposal from 
DMH. Questions which the Board of Selectmen wanted answers to 
were who was intended for the clientele for the house and for 
what length of time, whether better medical treatment was 
available at Belchertown, and whether the University and the 



-5- 



town might maintain some jurisdiction over the site until they 
have a clear idea of precisely what DMH wishes to do. 

Mr. Harper reviewed the history of the court case and con- 
sent decree and described the process by which the two sites 
were chosen. He added that each site would have a residential 
home on it with eight clients and support staff. The clients 
are transported to programs during the day and returned to the 
house in the evening. The time the clients would spend in the 
unit is based upon their needs. 

Chairman Quinn raised his concerns about providing for the 
return of the real estate to the University in the future 
should the Department of Mental Health cease to operate the 
facilities, authorizing the conveyance of the parcel based on 
the vote as written, and including as part of the vote the 
approval of the President for the design construction so that 
the structure would be compatible with the University grounds. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommit the matter of the transfer of 
land at the University of Massachusetts at 
Amherst to the Department of Mental Health 
to the Committee on Budget and Financial 
Affairs to work out the details of the 
land transfer and report at the April 3, 
1985 Board of Trustees meeting. 

And further, 



- 






VOTED ; To approve in principle the determination 
of surplus property at the Amherst campus 
for arrangement of transfer to the De- 
partment of Mental Health for the purpose 
of constructing alternative model com- 
munity residences for residents of the 
state school for the mentally retarded. 

The next item was the replacing of the current 
floor at the Clark Athletic Center Gym at UM/Boston. 
Trustee Sweeney said that the current chem-turf sur- 
face needs to be replaced in the Spring and it would 
be in the best interest to replace it with wood. The 
difference between resurfacing the current floor and 
total replacement with wood was $130,000. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED ; To allocate $130,000 from Trustee Reserve 
Funds at the University of Massachusetts 
at Boston for the purpose of replacing the 
current gym floor with wood. 



^

approved in principle by the Trustees with the amount 
of the fee to be implemented for FY86. Trustee Keller 
said the matter was a great concern to students and 
was a question of equity - letting students pay for 
the services they use. In addition to the basic ques- 
tion of equity, he added that several student groups 
would be hurt; among them would be students in the 
fraternity and sorority system and resident assist- 
ants. He said that students overwhelmingly support 
paying for the new fee on a fee for service basis. 

Sanjee S. Dugal , President, Graduate Student Sen- 
ate presented to Chairman Quinn 1, 110 signatures in 
opposition to the proposed University Resource Fee. 
He said the concern goes beyond the issue of equity 
and that it will affect both the quality of research 
and quality of graduate applicants in the future. 
Other students who spoke about the issue included 
Matthew Muir, Nancy Milligen, Jeff Teeters, Christos 
Karastamatic, Phyllis Roaden and Rick Patrick. After 
discussion, Chairman Quinn invited Trustee Keller to 
present his suggestion to the next meeting of the 
Committee on Budget and Financial Affairs for con- 
sideration and then before the Board of Trustees. 

Trustee Sweeney gave the report of the Committee 
on University Relations and Development which agreed 
to recommend that the Board approve the transfer of 
the Joseph P. Healey Endowment Fund and the Public 
Service Endowment Fund to the University of Massachu- 
setts Foundation. The purposes of both funds will 
remain the same. The transfer, he continued, was part 
of an ongoing effort to strengthen the Foundation. 
After Counsel Searson suggested an amendment, it was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To transfer custody of the Joseph P. 

Healey Endowment Fund to the University of 
Massachusetts Foundation. This move 
changes neither the original intention, 
uses or operation of this fund as estab- 
lished in T82-058. The general purpose of 
this fund remains the "enhancing of the 
academic quality of the University, pri- 
marily through subventions to faculty to 
increase research and scholarship poten- 
tial." Fund interest earnings, both rea- 
lized and unrealized totalling 7% of the 
principal at the beginning of the fiscal 
year prior to their availability, shall be 
allotted each year for current

and, 



use; any additional earnings shall be 
added to the principal. 

In calculating the amount to be allotted, 
funds added to the principal balance by 
the University's Operating Budget shall be 
deemed part of the principal at the be- 
ginning of that fiscal year. Distribu- 
tions will continue to be made, as at 
present, by the President of the Univer- 
sity. 

The transfer shall be implemented as of 
June 28, 1985, and shall include current 
balances as of that date. 

The Board of Trustees hereby retains the 
authority to rescind or modify this vote 
at any time. 



VOTED : To transfer custody of the Public Service 
Endowment Fund to the University of Massa- 
chusetts Foundation. This move changes 
neither the original intention, uses or 
operation of this fund as established in 
T82-058. The general purpose of the fund 
remains "enhancing the public service 
missions of the University; funds are to 
be allocated on a project basis rather 
than providing on-going support for any 
specific activity..." 

Fund interest earnings, both realized and 
unrealized totaling 7% of the principal at 
the beginning of the fiscal year prior to 
their availability, shall be allotted each 
year for current use, any additional earn- 
ings shall be re-invested and such earn- 
ings shall be added to the principal. 

In calculating the amount to be allotted, 
funds added to the principal balance by

President Knapp speaking of the FY86 Budget Request, said that 
the Regents had submitted a recommendation to the legislature to in- 
crease the funding for higher education. The amount recommended for 
Boston and Amherst would enable the two campuses to focus on some of 
their more pressing needs; the amount recommended for Worcester is 
inadequate. Efforts are underway asking the legislature for a fur- 
ther increase. He concluded his report by describing the upcoming 
administrative conference.

chair. 

The three Chancellors then reported on activities at the cam- 
puses.

Trustee Keller said he had been asked to inform the Board that 
the Whitmore Administration Building at Amherst was the site of a 
student sit-in protesting the Universal Resource Fee, investments 
in South Africa and, several other matters in which agreement had 
been reached. However, the sitters-in were determined to stay in 
the building until the fee and investment issues are settled to 
their satisfaction. 

Trustee Troy then reported for the Committee on Academic and 
Student Affairs. Without discussion it was moved, seconded and 



VOTED : To approve the February, 1985 graduation lists

Trustee Knowles then gave the report of the Committee on Budget

gram at UM/Worcester . Mr. Adams then described the proposed garage.

the proposals came in a timely fashion the Medical Center intends to 
bring a complete proposal to the June meeting of the Board. 

The next item, Trustee Knowles said, was FY85 Mid-Year Review . 
After discussion it was moved, seconded and

The 3oard then discussed the FY1986 Revenue Based Budget at UM/ 
Amherst. Trustee Keller contended that the proposed Universal Re- 
source Fee in the budget would be unfair to the majority of students 
at Amherst. Trustee Knowles said that this was not the case. 

Mr. Flynn, speaking for the fraternities and sororities, said 
that the fee would increase costs of the Greek students, thus reduc- 
ing the competitiveness of the sororities and fraternities with the 
campus dormitories. This could lead to a further reduction in hous- 
ing in and around the campus. Mr. Duval spoke of the particular diffi- 
culties the fee would present to graduate students and the deleterious 
effect this might have on the quality of the graduate program. 

Professor Mankin then read a statement from the Graduate Council 
asking the Trustees and the Chancellor to reconsider the imposition 
of the same fee on both graduates and undergraduates. 

Chancellor Duffey pointed out that the maintenance problems of 
the campus were so severe that they represented the greatest threat 
to the quality of academic programs and to the functioning of the 
campus. It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the FY86 Revenue-Based Budget at the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst and the 
fees and fee adjustments contained in Doc. T85- 
012. 

Trustee Keller voted against the motion. 

In the matter of Hospital Rates at the Medical Center, Trustee 
Knowles noted that the rates had not been raised for several yeais. 
Further, in negotiating with Blue Cross the Center could increase 
rates by 27%. The recommendation was for 6%. It was then moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To authorize the Chancellor of the University of 
Massachusetts Medical Center to increase hospital 
rates by an average of 6% effective April 1, 1985. 
(Doc. T85-024) 

The next item was Allocation from Trustee Reserve — UM/Worcester . 
This action paralleled an earlier Board action for the Boston and Am- 
herst campuses. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the allocation of $350,000 from the 
Trustee Reserve to the University of Massachu- 
setts at Worcester, $144,000 in FY86, 112,000 
in FY87, and $94,000 in FY88, for use by the 
campus Development Office. (Doc. T85-011)

The final Worcester item was the Cardiovascular Center . It was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To authorize the Chancellor of the University 

of Massachusetts Medical Center to proceed with 
the construction of a Cardiovascular Center as 
described in Doc. T85-023, with the understand- 
ing that the President's prior approval shall 
be required if funds other than those internally 
generated are used for the renovations, and the 
Chancellor will so report to the Committee on 
Budget and Financial Affairs. 

The next item was Transfer of Land — UM/ Amherst. After dis- 
cussion it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees of the University 
of Massachusetts declares as surplus real 
property two (2) parcels of land on the 
Amherst campus lying east of North Pleasant 
Street, one of which is north of the Wysocki 
House parcel and is approximately 150 feet 
in frontage by 290 feet in depth, and the 
other of which is south of the Wysocki House 
parcel and is approximately 150 feet in 
frontage by 290 feet in depth, and delegates 
to the President the authority to enter into 
an interagency agreement with the Department 
of Mental Health and the Division of Capital 
Planning and Operations for the purposes of 
effectuating the transfer of the subject 
surplus parcels. 

The Board then considered Checking Accounts . It was moved, seconded 
and 

VOTED : That the Treasurer of the University be, and 
hereby is authorized to designate signatures 
for Special Program checking accounts both 
here and abroad. (Doc. T85-022) 

The Board then discussed a possible tuition increase. It was 
agreed that the Regents should be apprised of the Board's concern 
in this matter. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the Chairman of the Board, in conjunction 
with Trustee Troy, express to the Board of Re- 
gents the Trustees concerns about a possible 
increase in tuition.

This completed the report of the Budget and Financial Affairs Com- 
mittee. 

r 

There then ensued a discussion concerning investment by the Univer- 
sity in companies doing business in South Africa. There seemed to be 
differing interpretations as to what constituted involvement in South 
Africa. After discussion it was agreed that this was a matter for con- 
sideration by the Committee on Budget and Financial Affairs. 

The Board then heard the report of the Committee on University 
Relations and Development. Trustee Sweeney said that the Committee 
had agreed to recommend that the Board approve a policy concerning the 
University of Massachusetts Foundation. He then referred to the follow- 
ing motion: 

MOVED : Upon acceptance of this vote by the Board of 
Governors of the University of Massachusetts 
Foundation, Inc. ("Foundation"), the President 
of the University or his designee is hereby 
authorized to transfer to the Foundation and 
the Foundation is authorized to accept on be- 
half of the University directly all gifts 
donated to the University of whatever kind, 
which shall be held in trust for the sole 
purpose of benefiting the University. The 
disposition of any gifts shall be effected by 
the Foundation at the direction of the Presi- 
dent or his designee. (Doc. T85-010) 

Further, the Foundation shall forward to the 
President a semi-annual report regarding the 
status of any such gifts and an annual fiscal 
report following the close of its fiscalyear, 
and shall provide information regarding such 
gifts as may be requested by the President or 
his designee. 

The Board of Trustees hereby reserves the right 
to rescind or modify this vote at any time. 

Trustee Knowles said that he had two reservations about this motion, 
one personal, the other corporate. The wording in the motion that the 
Foundation is authorized to accept all gifts for the sole purpose of 
benefiting the University, Trustee Knowles continued, is unacceptable 
to corporate and individual donors, most of whom want the gift to be 
used for specific purposes rather than have the gift be subject to dis- 
position by a third party. After discussion it was agreed that Trustees 
Knowles and Sweeney should discuss this matter further.

Trustee Sweeney concluded his remarks by noting the need for a 
publication which would address the University as a whole. 

Chairman Quinn then gave the report of the Executive Committee.

Donahue and David Riesman, in recognition of

whole and, more particularly, their contribu- 
tions to the development of the University of 
Massachusetts at Boston. (Doc. T85-019) 

The next item was Vice Chancellor for University Relations — UM/ 
Worcester. Without discussion it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To create the title Vice Chancellor for Uni- 
versity Relations at the University of Massa- 
chusetts at Worcester; further to concur along 
with the President in the appointment by the 
Chancellor of Larry Fox as Vice Chancellor for 
University Relations. (Doc. T85-014) 

The next item was minutes of meetings of the Hospital Management 
Board. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the January 23, 1985 

meeting of the Hospital Management Board, includ- 
ing the November and December, 1985, Unaudited 
Financial Statements and the Fourth Quarter Re-

Secretary to the Board of Trustees, Certifying 
Officer of the University; further, to appoint 
John F. Miller as Certifying Officer in the ab- 
sence of the Administrative Secretary.

Chairman Quinn convened the meeting of the Board of 
Trustees at 2:15 p.m. 

The first matter for consideration was the minutes of 
the April 3, 1985 meeting. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the April 3, 
1985 Board of Trustees meeting. 

The Chairman began his report by congratulating the 
Chancellors and the administrators at the various campuses 
on the successful Commencement Exercises. He then 
introduced and welcomed to their first Board meeting the 
new trustees, Rosalind Matthews, Dan Burgess, and Richard 
Bell. The new faculty representative from the Boston 
campus, Professor Bernard Kramer, was also introduced. 



As part of his report, he noted recently publicized 
achievements of graduates of the University. Two 
graduates from the Boston campus were recently ordained as 
priests and another Boston graduate, Sally Kelley, won an 
exciting and thrilling case before the Supreme Court of 
the United States on behalf of the Massachusetts Attorney 
General's Office. 

President Knapp reported that during the last three 
weeks the University granted in excess of 7,300 degrees. 

In reporting on the budget bill, he said the House 
version adds approximately five million dollars to the 
University budget over that recommended by the Governor 
and provides for additional appropriations for each of the 
campuses as well as a number of special items for the 
Boston and Worcester campuses. The supplemental budget, 
which would provide a significant amount of money for 
equipment funds for engineering and nursing programs for 
all of higher education, is under discussion by the the 
Board of Regents, the Governor and the Governor's staff. 
He added that from the University's standpoint the 
supplemental budget is a highly important item for the 
quality of the institution and the accreditation of the 
programs at the University. The General Court has not yet 
taken action at any level of the FY' 86 Capital Outlay 
budget. 

He announced a reception in honor of twenty-two 
authors and writers of the University to be held on 
September 20th at the Athenaeum. 

Chancellor Duffey cited recent accomplishments of the 
faculty at the Amherst campus including recipients of the 
1985 Guggenheim Fellowship, a Fulbright Grant and other 
distinguished awards and fellowships. 

Chancellor Corrigan noted recent achievements of the 
Boston faculty and gave a preliminary report on the 
applications for next fall. 

Chancellor Tranquada announced the arrival of Kathleen 
Dirschel the first dean of the Graduate School of Nursing. 
He also reported on several faculty members who have 
received fellowships and grants. 

The report of the Committee on Academic and Student 
Affairs Committee was given by Trustee Troy. The 
Committee met on May 22nd and the first item for 
discussion was the President's recommendations for Tenure

The proposal to establish the Foster Furcolo 
Scholarship Program was then discussed. The proposal he 
said seemed both educationally valuable in promoting 
quality and opportunity for graduates of community 
colleges and will be offered within the current 
limitations of non-need based tuition waivers as defined 
by the Board of Regents. He added that there were three 
notable features: recipients must have earned an 
Associates Degree from a Massachusetts public community 
college with a cumulative grade point average of at least 
3.50, be recommended by their Community College President,

Next on the agenda was a program from the Boston 
campus to establish a Major in Women's Studies . The 
program has existed as an interdisciplinary program with 
strong campus support since 1973. Trustee Troy reported 
that the vote of the Committee recommending the major was 
not unanimous and that there was some sentiment that the 
campus had not demonstrated sufficient need in terms of 
the number of students to justify moving it up to the 
level of a major and that programs of this kind may have 
already had their day nationally and if continued should 
exist on a minor rather than a major. There was 
discussion about what this major would do for women in 
terms of life careers and whether the University would be 
perpetuating a situation where women are continuously 
trapped into low paying jobs. After a brief discussion, 
it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the Bachelor of Arts degree in 
Women's Studies at the University of 
Massachusetts at Boston, subject to the

Three Appointments with Qverscale Salary were proposed

were for Dr. Lai Chugh, Associate Professor and Chair of 
the Accounting/Finance Department at the College of 
Management; Dr. Sumer Aggarwal, Professor and Associate 
Dean for Academic Affairs in the College of Management; 
and Dr. Wornie L. Reid, Associate Professor and Chair of

Sciences. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the personnel actions for Lai 
Chugh, Sumer Aggarwal and Wornie Reid 
contained in Doc. T85-037, Addendum 1. 

The Committee then recommended an amendment to the 
1977 South Africian Investment policy. President Knapp 
reviewed the history of the 1977 policy and said this 
spring, a group from the Amherst campus composed of 
students, faculty members and administrators suggested 
that the University policy be changed. Based on their 
report, which included a number of recommendations, he 
proposed that the basic language of the investment policy 
be expanded. If adopted, the University would be required 
to sell stock in four companies, Procter and Gamble 
Corporation, the Foxboro Company, J. P. Morgan § Company, 
and Bankers Trust New York Corporation. He further 
suggested if this policy is adopted the University would 
have 60 days to sell the stock. 

Trustee Bell moved to amend the motion by adding after 
lending institution "nor seek or accept funds or grants 
from any trust, corporation, or other entity private or 

-11- 



governmental nor employ any person who seeks or accepts 
such funds or grants from any such entity." There was a 
discussion on the amendment. 

Chairman Quinn who supported the motion to amend said 
if the Board believes with any vigor and conviction that 
it should be expressing its statement toward the apartheid 
policy of the government of South Africa, the Board ought 
to extend itself and not accept any money from 
corporations that are making money on the terrible 
conditions in South Africa. He further added that there 
is a contradiction to the statement made when money is 
accepted once it has been washed through the profits of a 
corporation that does business in South Africa and that 
corporation wants to make a gift, fund a grant, or keep a 
professor in a research program in the University. 

In response, Trustee Matthews said that most 
corporations who give grants have a major stake in the 
quality of education across the country as well as have a 
corporate social responsibility to fund the university. 

Trustees Sweeney and Trustee Troy voiced their 
sentiments against the amendment. 

After a discussion, the motion to amend the pending 
motion was defeated in by a vote of 8:2. Chairman Quinn 
and Trustee Bell voted in favor of the motion. 

Beatrice Hoffman, an undergraduate student and member 
of the Commission on South Africian Investments read a 
statement which had been distributed to the Board and 
asked the Board to support the proposed amendment to the 
current policy. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board amend the 
University Investment Policy (Doc. 
T73-093) by striking Section 2A and 
substituting therefor the following: 

Section 2a. The University will not 
invest in any company or lending 
institution which, either directly or 
through its subsidiaries or affiliates, 
does business in or with the Republic of 
South Africa or in countries with similar 
apartheid racial policies. 

Chairman Quinn is recorded as abstaining.

Trustee Sweeney gave the Report of the University 
Relations and Development Committee. He reported that 
attached to the agenda was a report which summarized the 
sense of the Committee's last meeting and requested the 
University to present a response to ten questions on how 
the University stands with respect to capital campaign 
planning. 

In concluding his report, he said he and Trustee 
Knowles met and agreed to the policy concerning the 
University of Massachusetts Foundation . The motion 
changed from that presented at the June meeting by 
deleting "any" from line six. After a brief discussion of 
how the vote would alter current practice, it was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : Upon acceptance of this vote by the Board 
of Governors of the University of 
Massachusetts Foundation, Inc. 
("Foundation"), the President of the 
University or his designee is hereby 
authorized to transfer to the Foundation 
and the Foundation is authorized to accept 
on behalf of the University directly gifts 
donated to the University of whatever

In addition to his service on two

exemplary. 

With this resolution the Board expresses 
its sincere admiration for and gratitude 
to Tom for his contributions to the 
University and people of the Commonwealth 



and, 



RESOLVED During his three years as a Trustee,

ommendations for Faculty Appointments to fill those chairs 
was next on the agenda. Trustee Troy explained that Named 
Professorships carry a certain distinction and prestige 
and is a highly effective way of honoring exceptional 
performance by faculty members. He noted that the Univer- 
sity has lagged behind many institutions over the years in 
not developing this honor so there is a certain amount of 
catching up to do. So as not to diminish the value of 
such an honor, a systematic policy to oversee and govern 
this procedure is being developed. It was moved, seconded

Exhibit 1); further, to delegate the 
authority to execute on behalf of the 
Trustees an instrument of direction as 
described in Article THIRD of said Trust 
Agreement to the Chancellor of the Medical 
Center and, in his absence, to the Dean/- 
Provost or the Vice Chancellor/Hospital 
Director. 

The next recommendation was to authorize the Chan- 
cellor to negotiate a Lease for 20,000 Square Feet of 
Laboratory Space for faculty research in the Biotechnology 
Research Park. Trustee Knowles reported that the expense 
of the space was discussed at length by the Committee. 
After a discussion of the terms of the lease, it was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To authorize the Chancellor of the 
University of Massachusetts Medical 
Center, pending action by the Division of 
Capital Planning and Operations, to 
negotiate a five year lease with a renewal 
and no more than four-five year options at 
fair market value, with the Biotechnology 
Research Park for 20,000 feet of 
laboratory space at an annual rental cost 
not to exceed $560,000 and that the lease 
include notice that if comparable space 
within the building is rented at an amount 
which is less than the square footage cost 
charged to the Medical Center, the Medical 
Center's cost will be adjusted to parity. 
(Doc. T85-055) 

The next recommendation was to authorize the Chan- 
cellor to Lease Space for the Primary Care Clinics . In 
explaining this item, Chancellor Tranquada said this would 
have a number of salutatory effects among them a very 
complex one involving the kinds of rates for which these 
clinics are eligible depending upon whether they are 
deemed to be hospital based or non-hospital based. This 
will also provide additional room in the existing am- 
bulatory space in the Medical Center for the creation of a 
Cancer Center at no cost. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To authorize the Chancellor of the 
University of Massachusetts Medical 
Center, pending action by the Division of 

-s- 



( 



Capital Planning and Operations, to enter 
into a five year lease, with a renewal and 
no more than three-five year options at 
fair market value, for 12,800 square feet 
to house the Primary Care Clinics at an 
annual rental cost of $153,600. (Doc. 
T85-045A) 

The next item was the FY86 Group Practice Plan Bud - 
get . It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the FY86 Group Practice Plan 
Budget contained in Doc. T85-053. 

President Knapp then reviewed the FY86 Budget alloca- 
tions which were before the Board. He called attention to 
the fact that eight percent of the total increase is in 
salary increases. This, he said, has a very significant 
impact for the University as we begin planning for the 
future. Because of the lateness in receiving the alloca- 
tions, a detailed allocation by subsidiary account will be 
presented at the October meeting. 

Trustee Sweeney indicated his dissatisfaction with the 
budget, the process, and the Regents' recommendation and 
asked that the motion be amended to include instructions 
to the Budget and Financial Affairs Committee to study and 
to recommend to the Board a policy to ensure a better 
understanding of the budget process and a clear and defin- 
itive procedure for approving the budget. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To authorize the President to approve and 
adopt the policies and procedures 
governing the allocation and expenditure 
of state and non-state funds by the 
University from July 1, 1985, until such 
time as the Board of Trustees adopts the 
Operating Budget for Fiscal Year 1986; and 
to instruct the Budget and Financial 
Affairs Committee to pursue, prior to the 
October meeting, a study and recommend to 
the Board a policy to ensure a better 
understanding of the budget process. 

The next item was the FY87 Budget and New Requests . 
Trustee Knowles said there was a philosophical discussion 
the Board needed to address because inherent with the 
recommendation was the philosophy of making the University 
of Massachusetts the best public institution in the North- 
east and that was a change in mission. 

President Knapp then described the process involved in 
developing the FY87 maintenance base budget and gave an 

-6- 



overview of the new requests. He described the goals for 
the University for FY87 which are to strengthen the stock 
of the academic equipment, libraries and existing core 
academic programs, ensuring access and support to all 
qualified students, extending the Centers of Excellence, 
protecting our investment on the physical plan, and 
balancing non-payroll accounts with faculty needs. By 
campus, the new program requests totalled $18,307,150 at 
Amherst; $7,652,020 at Boston; $3,131,065 at Worcester; 
$250,000 university-wide; $90,000 for University Admini- 
stration; $216,000 for the Institute for Governmental 
Services. Of the total 29.6 million dollars, eighty per- 
cent is in non-personnel accounts reflecting the equip- 
ment, facilities, library dominance of this request. He 
then reviewed in detail the breakdown of each of the cam- 
puses' new requests. 

Trustee Knowles said that there is a need to unders- 
tand the FY87 budget better and agree with the mission as 
set forth. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To authorize the President to continue 
with the FY87 Budget Request process. 
(Doc. T85-047) 

The Committee then recommended and it was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED: To establish the Telecommunications 
Planning Fund and to approve the 
allocation of $325,000 from the Trustee 
Reserve to said fund. (Doc. T85-060) 



and, 



VOTED: To approve the salary of $70,000 for 

Professor Maurice J. Eash, Director of the 
Institute for Learning and Teaching at the 
University of Massachusetts at Boston. 
(Doc. T85-064) 



and further 



VOTED: To approve the following salaries at the 

University of Massachusetts Medical Center 

Gerald G. Steinberg, Professor of 

Orthopedics and Chief of the Orthopedic 

Clinic - $160,000 

Okike N. Okike, Associate Professor of 

Cardiac Surgery - $165,000 

Robert Walton, Associate Professor and 

Chair of the Department of Plastic Surgery 

$170,000. 

(Doc. T85-063)

In explaining the next item President Knapp said his- 
torically there had been a one percent pool of pro- 
fessional and faculty positions eligible for overscale 
salaries. Several years ago, the General Court added an 
outside section to the Budget which provided for a new 
category of overscale salaries. The new category was a 
five percent group. At the time it was created, it was 
intended to provide the University with the freedom it 
needed to get people at higher salaries. A second 
category was to resolve the problem of faculty members who 
under the collective bargaining agreement have achieved 
salaries above the top of scale and become chair- persons 
and have to drop back to a salary less than what they were 
getting as a faculty member or become part of an overscale 
pool . 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To authorize the President to approve 

overscale salaries for faculty members who 
are or will be department chairs or heads 
whose salaries, are during tenure in those 
positions, at or above the state maximum. 
These salaries will only be applicable for 
the duration of service as chair or head. 
(Doc. T35-062) 

Chancellor Duffey then gave a brief status report on 
the Engineering Building at the Amherst Campus. 

Trustee Matthews then made the comment that since the 
Board has appointed an Affirmative Acton Committee, the 
Board has the responsibility to make sure that once the 
budgets are approved and implemented that the department 
heads are held accountable for those budgets and the af- 
firmative action thrusts primarily in the area of procure- 
ment. 

Chairman Quinn then gave the report of the Executive 
Committee which met and considered recommendations to 
name the Swimming Pool in the Boyden Physical Education 
Building at Amherst and to rename the Auditorium at 
Boston . It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To name the swimming pool in the Boyden 
Physical Education Building at the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst 
the Joseph Rogers Swimming Pool in honor of 
Joseph Rogers' forty-four years of service 
to the University and its students as the 
Swimming Coach. (Doc. T85-051) 



and, 



-8- 



VOTED : To rename the Large Science Auditorium 
at the Harbor Campus Science Center the 
Herbert Lipke Memorial Science Auditorium 
in recognition of Professor Lipke' s 
contribution to the development of the 
biological sciences at the University of 
Massachusetts at Boston. (Doc. T85-050) 

Chancellor Tranquada explained that the next item 
would be a joint venture between members of the Group 
Practice representing the University and members of the 
Fallon Clinic. This entity would provide a vehicle for 
the Group Practice and physicians at the Fallon clinic to 
come together to provide services for subscribers to the 
Fallon HMO thereby expanding a broad variety of colla- 
borative interests from shared specialty services to new 
kinds of in-patient services, rehabilitative services, and 
free-standing surgical services. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To assist in establishing the 



Corporation, and to designate the 
University of Massachusetts Foundation, 
Inc. as the shareholder of the record of 
the University's shares in said 
corporation; provided however, that the 
Chancellor of the Medical Center shall 
exercise the voting rights of said shares, 
all as more fully described in Doc. 
T85-052B; further, to authorize the 
Chancellor of the Medical Center to 
disburse $150,000 to the University of 
Massachusetts Foundation, under the terms 
and restrictions set forth in said 
document. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the May 15, 1985 
meeting of the Hospital Management Board, 
including the March Unaudited Financial 
Statements, the Appointments and Re- 
appointments to the Medical staff and the 
FY86 Hospital Objectives. (Doc. T85-049) 

Chairman Quinn then reported that the State Student 
Associat ion was considered by the Committee and it was 
decided to offer counsel for the State Student Association 
the opportunity to respond in writing to Counsel Searson's 
memorandum of July 2nd. President Knapp said he expected 
to have a recommendation for the Board on this matter for 
the October meeting and anticipated a recommendation from 
the campus. 

-9- 



There being no objection, item C6, Honorary Degrees 
was placed at the end of the calendar.

Chairman Quinn convened the meeting at 1:30 p.m. 
The first matter dealt with was consideration of the 
minutes of the prior meeting of the Board. Without dis- 
cussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To approve the minutes of the August 7, 
1985 meeting of the Board. 

Chairman Quinn expressed appreciation to Chancellor 
Duffey for hosting the meeting. As part of the Chairman's 
report, he announced the reappointment of Trustee Thalia 
Zervas to the Hospital Management Board for a three year 
term to continue through June, 1988. 



President Knapp reported that the Steering Committee 
of College and University Presidents in collaboration with 
the College and University community and the Boston School 
System would be releasing a report on collaboration in 
Boston. This, he said, speaks to a very important en- 
deavor that the University and other colleges have been 
engaged in with respect to upgrading the quality in the 
public schools. 

Chancellor Duffey distributed copies of recently pub- 
licized events on the Amherst campus - the endorsement of 
the Amherst campus budget presentation by the Trustees at 
Berkshire Community College and the announcement of the 
third industrial university research program in the past 
three years in Chemical Processes Design and Control. He 
then introduced two students from the campus who represent 
Students Advocating Financial Aid (SAFA) and asked them to 
speak. Jim Shaw, President and Karen Gray, Secretary ex- 
plained that SAFA has evolved during the last six years as 
a professional lobbyist organization representing the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts. Both students thanked the Board 
for its support. 

Chancellor Corrigan gave an update on the accredi- 
tation of the Boston campus and announced that the campus 
has received a ten year reaccreditation from the New 
England Association. He distributed the report of the 
visiting team and pointed out that the accreditation team 
did point to the lack of financial resources to bring UM/- 
Boston to a point where it could support its graduate and 
professional programs. He also reported on recently re- 
ceived faculty and staff grant funding. 

The continued problem of the elevators at the Park 
Square Building was then discussed. President Knapp said 
the problem during the last month has become more severe 
and he had communicated to Tunney Lee of the Division of 
Capital Planning and Operations that the danger to life 
was so great that he was thinking about closing the build- 
ing. He reported that bids on the replacement of the 
elevators were opened on September 23rd and three people 
who entered bids were ineligible because they did not file 
their interest in being contractors on a continuing basis 
on schedule with DCPO. The reopening of bids was 
scheduled for October 15. Conversations with DCPO will 
continue in an effort to replace the elevators and 
operation of the system. After further discussion, it was 
moved, seconded and 



-2- 



VOTED: To direct the President to correspond with 
Frank Keefe, Secretary of Administration 
and Finance, and convey to him the 
Trustees' concern over the safety of 
individuals who work and attend class at 
250 Stuart Street; copies of such corre- 
spondence should be sent to all appro- 
priate state officials. 

Chancellor Tranquada said Convocation, postponed be- 
cause of the hurricane, would be rescheduled for December 
4th when the Board meets in Worcester. He reported that 
the UMass Group Practice had announced the joint venture 
with the Fallon Clinic now called the Northeast Medical 
Alliance. He also announced that the Medical School's 
Occupational Health Service had received a $400,000 grant 
from the Kellogg Foundation for the establishment of an 
interdisciplinary educational program in occupational and 
industrial health and that a program in Occupational 
Health hazards in high technology is in the process of 
being developed with Clark University. 

In concluding his report, he said on November 2nd the 
New England Life Flight will hold its first Patient Re- 
union at Pleasant Valley. One thousand patients who were 
taken and delivered to appropriate medical care by the 
Helicopter have been invited. 

Mr. Troy, reporting for the Committee on Academic and 
Student Affairs, said the first item of business was 
Appointments with Tenure for Eula Bingham as Professor of 
Public Health and William Highter as Professor of Civil 
Engineering. Both candidates for appointment were distin- 
guished in their chosen fields. It was moved, seconded 
and 

VOTED: To concur with the President in the 

appointment of Dr. William H. Highter, as 
Professor of Civil Engineering with tenure 
and of Dr. Eula Bingham was Professor of 
Public Health with tenure at the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts at Amherst. (Doc. 
T85-071) . 

Then discussed were Postponements of Return from Sab - 
batical Leave for individuals at the Amherst campus. 
Trustee Troy reported that in the course of the 
Committee's discussion, the possibility of delegating the 
authority to grant postponements to the campuses was 
raised and would be considered at the next meeting of the 
Committee. It was moved, seconded and 



-3- 



VOTED: To postpone for one semester the re- 
quirement that Professor Bronislaw 
Honigberg return to the University on com- 
pletion of his sabbatical leave; further, 
to grant Professor Honigberg a leave with- 
out pay from September 1, 1985 through 
January 26, 1986. (Doc. T85-072) 

and, 

VOTED: To postpone for one semester the require- 
ment that Professor Richard Minear return 
to the University on completion of his 
sabbatical leave; further, to grant 
Professor Minear a leave of absence with- 
out pay from January 26, 1986 through 
August" 31, 1986. (Doc. T85-072) 

The next item was the proposed Establishment of the 
Department of Judaic and Near Eastern Studies at UM/- 
Amherst. This proposal would merge two existing programs 
both of which are distinguished and recognized as such. 
The joining of these two programs brings together many 
common 'interests into one administrative and academic 
unit. There would be no additional costs and there might 
be savings. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To merge the Judaic Studies Program and 
the Near Eastern Studies major at the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst and 
establish the Department of Judaic and 
Near Eastern Studies as described in doc. 
T85-070. 

A proposal for a Ph.D Program in Music at the Amherst 
campus was then discussed. The study of music is largely 
in two areas - instrumentalists and musicologists and the 
target population of the proposed program is in the 
latter. If approved, the program would require very 
little in the way of financial costs. It was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED: To approve, subject to the concurrence of 
the Board of Regents, the Ph.D. in Music a 
the University of Massachusetts at Amherst 
as described in Doc. T85-069. 

Trustee Troy said the Committee then discussed the 
Establishment of a Proposed Department of Social Work with 
a Master of Social Work Degree . He said it was a very 
well thought out and carefully prepared document and pro- 
posal, but the Committee thought it was responding to a 
dilemma despite the fact that it was a good proposal and 



-4- 



would answer a demonstrated need it would on the other 
hand establish a question of priorities in the expenditure 
of monies. It would put financial pressure on many ex- 
isting programs which are already under financial pres- 
sure. He reported that it was decided to delay action on 
this until there could be more study by the Committee. 

He said the Committee also heard a Report on Under - 
graduate Program Reviews . It was noted that this series 
of reviews mandated by the Regents was similar to earlier 
reviews - the courses are good, they are distinguished, 
the faculty are effective, entirely competent and dis- 
tinguished but there was cited a lack of proper library 
support and support of laboratories and instrumentation. 

He concluded the Committee Report by giving a Status 
Report on the Healey Public Service Endowment Grant 
Awards . There were a total of 46 awards on the three cam- 
puses and a total expenditure of $244,244. 

Trustee Knowles gave the report of the Committee on 
Budget and Financial Affairs. The first item was the FY86 
Operating Budget . It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the FY86 Operating Budget set 
forth in Doc. T85-048. 

President Knapp then reviewed the preliminary recom- 
mendations of the Board of Regents for the University and 
by campus for the FY87 Budget . The Regents preliminary 
recommendation for the University totalled $241,941,340, a 
7% increment for the University as a whole, variable from 
campus to campus. Under the new request items, there were 
significant decreases - less than 50% of what was re- 
quested. Hearings for the University's budget with mem- 
bers of the Board of Regents staff and several members of 
the Board of Regents was scheduled for October 7th. 

After further discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To approve the FY87 Budget Request con- 
' tained in Doc. T85-047. 

Trustee Carlin is recorded as opposed to the motion. 

It was then moved, seconded and 



VOTED: To approve the FY87 Capital Outlay Budget 
Request contained in Doc. T85-075. 



-5- 



The next item was the publishing of an Atlas of 
Massachusetts and an allocation of $200,000 from the 
Trustee Reserve. Trustee Knowles said that the dis- 
cussion at the Committee meeting yielded the provision 
that a price and marketing strategy be established 
aimed at reimbursing the Trustee Reserve. It was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To establish an "Atlas of Massachusetts" 
account a the University of Massachusetts 
at Amherst and to approve the allocation 
to that account of $200,000 ($100,000 in 
FY86 and $100,000 in FY87) from the 
Trustee Reserve, provided that a price and 
marketing strategy be established aimed at 
reimbursing the Trustee Reserve within 
three years of the time of publication. 
(Doc. T85-079) 

Trustee Carlin is recorded as opposed to the motion. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To accept the gift of land at East 

Wareham, Massachusetts from the Cape Cod 
Cranberry Grower's Association as de- 
scribed in Doc. t85-076; further, to ex- 
press to the Association the gratitude of 
the Trustees. 

and, 

VOTED: To approve an overscale salary of $58,000 
per year for Sheldon B. Akers, Professor 
of Electrical and Computer Engineering at 
the University of Massachusetts at 
Amherst. (Doc. T85-078) 

There then ensued a discussion of the FY87 Budget re- 
quest. Concern arose regarding a lack of funds in the 
preliminary recommendation from the Board of Regents 
earmarked for plant maintenance. Chairman Quinn then 
asked Trustee Carlin to undertake a specific study of the 
issue and make a recommendation to the Board and report to 
the Board any actions undertaken or recommended. 

The problem of the elevators and the issue of public 
safety of the individuals who ride the elevators at the 
250 Stuart Street Building was again addressed. After a 
lengthy discussion, it was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To close the passenger elevators at the 
250 Stuart Street Building at the end of 
business on October 2, 1985, such 



-6- 



elevators shall not be reopened until 
repaired and deemed to be in good operat- 
ing condition as determined by the Presi- 
dent of the University or his designee. 

It was suggested that the Chancellors call to the 
Board's attention at the next appropriate Committee meet- 
ing any problems or safety hazards that they observed. 

Chairman Quinn, reporting for the Executive Committee, 
said the first item dealt with was the proposal for the 
levying of a voluntary State Student Association of Massa - 
chusetts fee on the basis of a negative check-off fee. He 
said that should the Board act favorably on this policy 
there was a sunset provision in the document which puts a 
two year limit on the action of the Board. President 
Knapp suggested that since the student referendum last 
April anticipated campus support for the full fiscal year, 
it seemed appropriate to recommend that the Board approve 
a one-time fee of $2 in the Spring of 1986 which would 
represent that level of support. After hearing from Mr. 
Wray, a Student representative from the Amherst campus 
about the levying of the fee, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To approve the levying of a voluntary 

State Student Association Student fee of 
$1.00 per semester at UM/Amherst on the 
basis of a negative check-off procedures, 
provided, that if in any semester less 
than fifty per cent of the students at the 
campus elect to make such payments, such 
authorization will cease; and provided 
further, that SSAM shall reimburse the 
Commonwealth for any expenses incurred by 
the University in collecting such pay- 
ments; further, to satisfy the intent of 
the student referendum, to approve a 
one-time fee of $2 for the spring semester 
of 1986; all as more fully described in 
Doc. T85-068. 

The next item considered was the establishment of the 
position of Vice Chancellor for Planning at UM/Boston. It 
was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To create the position of Vice Chancellor 
for Planning at the University of Massa- 
chusetts at Boston. (Doc. T85-065) 

and, 



-7- & 

r 



VOTED: To concur along with the President in the 
appointment by the Chancellor of Donald 
Babcock as Vice Chancellor for Planning at 
the University of Massachusetts at 
Boston. (Doc. T85-065) 

The Hospital Management Board Minutes were then con- 
sidered. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To approve the minutes of the June 26, 
1985 meeting of the Hospital Management 
Board, including the April Unaudited 
Financial Statement, the authorization of 
Jan Wyatt, Hospital Administrator, or her 
designee to execute the Certification of 
Authority for the Blue Cross HA-30 
Contract; the Appointments and Reappoint- 
ments to the Medical Staff and to approve 
the Hospital Performance Indicators for 
the period ending March 31, 1985; 

and further, 

To approve the reappointment of Mr. Robert 
Bowditch and the appointment of Mr. 
William Kelleher to the Hospital Manage- 
ment Board each for a three-year term to 
expire in June, 1988. (Doc. 85-066) 

It was then moved, seconded and

Chairman Troy called the meeting to order at 2:15 p.m. The 
first item of business was Appointment with Tenure of Gerald 
Nash — UM/Worcester . Chancellor Tranquada said that Dr. Nash 
has an impeccable record of education and training--an A.B., 
cum laude from Princeton, an M.D., cum laude from Harvard Med- 
ical School and subsequent training at U.C.L.A. While at Mass- 
achusetts General he served as Chief Resident. His publica- 
tions are equally distinguished and he has the reputation as 
one of the top Pulmonary Pathologists in the nation. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board concur with 

the President in his appointment of Gerald 
Nash as Professor of Pathology with tenure 
at the University of Massachusetts at 
Worcester. (Doc. T85-002) 

The next item was Appointment with Tenure of William 
Shepherd --UM/ Amherst . Provost O'Brien said Professor Shepherd 
was also a man of distinction in his field of expertise -- 
industrial organization and public policy. He is the author of 
a dozen or so books, some of them considered classics, and some 
fifty scholarly articles on an array of subjects. 



A&SA Professor Shepherd, at his request, served as a Visiting 

1/23/85 Professor last year and he has the enthusiastic support of his 
colleagues to be in the Department of Economics. 

After discussion it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board concur with the 
President in his appointment of William G. 
Shepherd as Professor of Economics with tenure 
at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. 
(Doc. T85-003) 

The next item was Master of Science in Nursing Program -- 
UM/Boston. Vice President Smith said he had been aware of the 
planning of the program before assuming his present position. 
He noted that the planning process had been an exceptionally 
thorough one and the Amherst and Worcester campuses had been 
consulted throughout. Chancellor Corrigan agreed and said that 
the end product of the process could serve as a model in the 
development of program proposals. 

Provost Greene noted that the proposal was fully consistent 
with the campus's five year plan of developing professional 
programs. Also, the undergraduate nursing program, having been 
established in 1974 at Boston State College was fully developed 
despite having to weather the merger and the move to the Harbor 
Campus. Further Provost Greene continued, during the two years 
since the merger the campus had been trying to remedy the lack 
of equipment and library materials and inadequate quarters. 

The proposed program places emphasis on nursing management, 
teaching and research, as well as developing clinical skills, 
particularly in geriatric nursing. in due course the program 
would also offer concentration in medical, surgical, pediatric 
and family practice nursing. The program will utilize courses 
in other disciplines offered at Boston, for example, psychology 
and sociology. 

In the matter of need and demand for the program, the 
School of Nursing had conducted a survey in fall, 1983. It 
showed a substantial and growing need for a graduate nursing 
program that is of high quality and affordable and accessible. 
Because establishment of the program was subject to the con- 
currence of the Regents the campus intended to do more work in 
determining the need for the program. 

In response to Chairman Troy's question, Dr. Kibrick said 
that those entering the program will have taken their basic 
science courses in their baccalaureate program. The proposed 
program made provision for further instruction in the basic 
sciences if such was needed. 

Also, Dr. Kibrick continued, while at Boston State there 
was pressure to establish a graduate program but the nursing 

-2- 



faculty took the position that the college was a restricted A&SA 
educational environment and a graduate program needed the op-1/23/85 
tions such as a university provides. The experience at Boston 
State indicated that the need for a graduate program was a 
long-standing one. Many calls have been received from admini- 
strators of private sector nursing schools expressing concern 
over the effect of the UMass Boston program on their enroll- 
ments. In fact, the effect will be minimal as the program will 
draw from a different population group — older and have had 
experience, the private sector draws people who have just 
earned bachelor's degrees. 

Also, plans were underway which would provide for a close 
relationship with the nursing program at the Medical Center, 
chiefly in the interchange of faculty and other appropriate 

ways. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board establish, sub- 
ject to the concurrence of the Board of 
Regents, the Master of Science in Nursing 
Program at the University of Massachusetts 
at Boston as described in Doc. T85-001 

The Committee then discussed the final item on the agenda, 
Presidential Evaluation Policy . President Knapp said the Com- 
mittee had been asked to compare and discuss the Trustee policy 
on evaluating senior administrators with the Regent's policy on 
presidential evaluations. 




The third difference, President Knapp continued, relates to 
the matter of confidentiality. The Trustee policy provides a 
highly confidential process with limited access to evaluation 
documents. The Regent's policy makes such documents a matter 
of record. 

Chancellor Corrigan asked leave to interrupt, noting that 
he had been Chairman of the Personnel Committee of the Council 
of Public Presidents during the time the Regent's evaluation 
policy was being developed. The document had caused great 
controversy. It was clear that the public Presidents wanted a 
policy that was much more like the University policy than that 



-3- 



A&SA which the Regents had adopted. The Regent's staff wanted some- 
1/23/85 thing that was much more open and somewhat callous. 

Chairman Troy said that there was one thing in the Regent's 
policy that caused him concern. He noted that for years public 
institutions had been controlled by lay boards. In the Regents 
proposal it is recommended that Chairman Quinn, a layman, 
should submit a summary of the Trustees evaluation to a paid 
professional, the Chancellor of the Regents. At least, Chair- 
man Troy continued, such a submission should be made to the 
Chairman of the Regents. 

Trustee Zervas pointed out that the policy called for a 
summary of the evaluation was to be submitted. She asked if 
this made a difference. Mr. Searson said it did not, it was 
clear from the minutes of the Regents meeting that adopted the 
policy that copies of the evaluation were to be circulated 
among the Regents. Mr. Searson concluded by questioning the 
legality of the Regents policy in the case of the University. 

Trustee zervas said that while there were various un- 
answered questions it was not clear to her if the matter had 
been studied enought to challenge the Regents in this case. 




Trustees, he continued, are sort of an inconvenient impedi- 
ment. There is a question as to what is the interrelationship 
between the Trustees and the Regents. Is the Board of Trustees 
a lay Board responsible for the University? This tends to draw 
the larger issue -- what are the relationships -- to a head. 

Chairman Troy said there were certain assumptions made by 
the Regent's staff, throughout the proposal that are set forth 
as facts. One matter is the reappointment of presidents. 
President Knapp said that in a discussion with Chancellor Duff 
he had been assured that during his tenure as President the 
Regents would not interfere, however, the Regents would appoint 
a new president. 

There then ensued a general discussion of how the Univer- 
sity should present its case and/or define its uniquness. One 
way to accomplish the latter was that, of all 27 public higher 
educational institutions in the Commonwealth, only the Univer- 
sity received less than half of the income from the state. 
Also, if only because of its research capability size 

-4- 



A&SA 
and graduate programs it could not be compared with the statel/23/{ 
and community colleges. 

It was noted that it would be of benefit to the Regents and 
their staff should spell out the differences between the Uni- 
versity and the other segments. 

In the matter of how best to deal with this question, 
Trustee Zervas suggested that this was a time for lobbying, not 
confrontation. President Knapp recommended that the University 
not go back to the Regents on the issue of evaluations because 
the Regents and their staff were not, at this time, prepared to 
deal with it. He noted that an internal study was being made 
of public institutions in other states which had undergone 
reorganization such as had happened in Massachusetts. This 
study might shed light on what the University should do. 

Chairman Troy said that while the Committee should recom- 
mend that the Board take no immediate action on the general 
subject of evaluation, the matter of the Chairman of the Board 
reporting to a paid professional should be dealt with. Such a 
channel might set an unfortunate precedent. 

President Knapp noted that legislation had been filed which 
would subject all policy decisions by any Board of Trustees to 
approval by the Board of Regents. He suggested that this might 
be a point to focus on. 

Chairman Troy said that the consensus of the Committee 
seemed to be that the Trustees should take a rather reflective, 
long term approach, rather than an immediate response. Also, 
to recommend that the Trustees have retreat to discuss this 
vexatious matter. 



There was no further business to come before the Committee 
and the meeting was adjourned at 3:40 p.m.

MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF THE 
COMMITTEE ON ACADEMIC AND STUDENT AFFAIRS 

March 20, 1985; 2:00 p.m.

Zervas 

Other Trustees : Trustee Keller 

University Administration : President Knapp ; Dr. Smith, Vice 
President for Academic Affairs; Mr. Searson, General Counsel 

UM/Amherst : Provost O'Brien 

UM/Boston: Provost Greene 

UM/Worcester : Provost Kelly; Mr. Hanshaw, Acting Vice 
Chancel lor/ Academic Dean 

Chairman Troy convened the meeting at 2:15 p.m. 

The first items considered were the Graduation Lists at 
Amherst, Boston, and Worcester. Chairman Troy said it had been 
brought to his attention that the Amherst Graduation lists were 
dated February 1985. Mr. Kelly said that Diane Mallory, who 
had been recommended for a Master of Science in Medical Sci- 
ences, should be added to the Worcester list. In response to a 
question concerning the number of full-time graduate students, 
Provost Greene said that the majority are part-time graduate 
students, employed as well as going to school. The number of 
full-time graduate students has risen dramatically, now there 
are approximately 1,000 graduate students. The major reason 
for more full-time graduate students is an increase in the 
amount and number of graduate stipends. It was moved, seconded 
and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 
February, 1985 graduation lists at the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst, 
and the June, 1985 graduation lists at the 
University of Massachusetts at Boston and 
the University of Massachusetts at 
Worcester, all subject to the completion 

V 



of all requirements as certified by the 
Recorder of the respective campuses. 
(Doc. T85-013ABSC) 



The next items discussed were Postponement of the Sabbati - 
cal Leave Requirement at Amherst and Boston. At Amherst, the 
request was for a one-semester postponement pending approval of 
the individual's application for a Fulbright Fellowship. At 
Boston, the individual will complete the requirements for the 
PH.D. It was moved, and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board postpone for 
the Academic Year 1985/86 the requirement 
that Sylvia Gendrop return to the 
University on the completion of her 
sabbatical leave; further, to grant Pro- 
fessor Gendrop a leave of absence without 
pay from September 1, 1985 to September 1, 
1986. (Doc. T85-016) 

and, 

To recommend that the Board postpone for 
one semester the requirement that Alfred 
S. Alschuler return to the University on 
completion of his sabbatical leave; 
further, to grant Professor Alschuler a 
leave of absence without pay from January 
26, 1986 to August 31, 1986. (Doc. T85-020) 

The last item on the agenda was Awards with Tenure at 
Amherst, Boston, and Worcester. Dr. Smith commended the cam- 
puses for their efforts to conform to the requirements of the 
tenure review policy at all levels. There was, he continued, a 
reflection of that thoroughness in the quality of the candi- 
dates before the Committee. For example, included in the rec- 
ommendations were two world renowned linguists, an astro- 
physicist of similar stature, two Presidential Young Scholars, 
three recipients of Outstanding Teacher Awards, a guest editor 
for a top journal, a Mina Shaughnessy Fellowship, a Kellogg 
Fellow, and an invitee to join the International Society for 
Research on Emotion which is limited to 100 invited members 
throughout the world. Another point of interest was the affir- 
mative action profile of the candidates. There was a total of 
twenty-nine candidates, ten were women, six were minorities, 
and of special interest, two of the five from Worcester were 
black males. In terms of the percent of tenure on each campus 
and the University as a whole, it varied from 44% in one in- 
stance to 83%. Roughly 68% of the faculty in the University as 
a whole are tenured. This was comparable to similar campuses. 

-2- 






Trustee Keller expressed the view that there should be more 
significant participation of students in the tenure process. 
Provost O'Brien shared Trustee Keller's concern about appro- 
\ priate student input and said he would be anxious to review 

ways of including it. 

It was moved, and

Excerpts from the Academic Program Reviews at Amherst and 
Boston were distributed. President Knapp indicated that this 
was prepared to help put together supporting data for budgetary 
discussion. He pointed out to the Committee the continuity of 
the theme that the quality of faculty and curriculum is high 
but the facilities and equipment are poor. If these are not 
upgraded it will be a deterent to recruiting quality faculty.

The next items considered were Postponements of Return 
from Sabbatical Leave and an Extension of Leave Without 
Pay. Professor Carpino's request would enable him to com- 
plete research he is conducting in Moscow under the Na- 
tional Academy of Sciences. Professor Fata is currently 
on leave without pay following a sabbatical leave. His 



-2- 



additional year's postponement will enable him to complete 
the cur- riculum development program he has begun at 
California State University at Long Beach. Professor 
O'Neill's re- quest would enable her to accept an 
appointment to conduct research with a computer science 
group in private industry which will contribute 
significantly to her department and the College. Provost 
O'Brien in responding to an inquiry as to whether problems 
were encountered in securing fac- ulty replacements and 
the effect on students said there were three customary 
ways to cover the leave 1) by en- larging the use of 
graduate students involved in teaching coupled with 
faculty colleagues, 2) by a faculty member taking on 
additional responsibility and 3) by a visiting faculty. 
It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board postpone 
for one semester the requirement that 
Professor Louis Carpino return to the 
University on completion of his sabbati- 
cal leave; further, to grant Professor 
Carpino a leave without pay from Janu- 
ary 26, 1986 through August 31, 1986. 
(Doc. T85-032); 

And further, 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board grant Professor 
Frank Fata an extension of his leave 
without pay through August 31, 1986. 
(Doc. T85-032) 

And further, 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board postpone for 
one semester the requirement that Pro- 
fessor Elizabeth O'Neill return to the 
University on completion of her sabbatical 
leave; further, to grant Professor O'Neill 
a leave without pay from January 26, 1986 
through August 31, 1986. (Doc. T85-032) 

The Foster Furcolo Scholarship Program was the next 
item on the agenda. President Knapp indicated that the 
proposal originated from the Boston campus but after dis- 
cussion it was agreed it should be available at Boston and 
Amherst. The program will provide two years of tuition 
and fees for each recipient. To qualify a recipient must 
have earned an Associate's Degree from a Massachusetts 
public community college with a cumulative grade point 



-3- 



average of 3.50, be a Massachusetts resident, and be 
recommended by his/her community college President. The 
scholarships will be based on the ability of the students 
and not charged off against the need based program. After 
dis- cussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board establish 
the Foster Furcolo Scholarship Program 
at the University of Massachusetts at 
Amherst and at Boston which scholarships 
will offer the equivalent of two years 
tuition and fees to graduates of com- 
munity colleges of the Commonwealth 
under the conditions set forth in Doc. 
T85-033. 

The next item was the Proposal for a Major in Women's 
Studies at Boston. Vice President Smith emphasized that 
this was a major developing out of a program which has ex- 
isted on the campus since 1973. No additional resources 
are required. Provost Greene elaborating on the details, 
said the program at present offers a certificate to stu- 
dents who select Women's Studies as a minor. Further, 
about forty major universities, including Yale, Brown, 
Berkley and U. Massachusetts Amherst, offer a major in 
Women's Studies. In the certificate program about forty- 
five students are enrolled and an average of four to five 
individual majors have graduated during the last three 
years. It is hoped that the number would double based on 
the expressed interest of the certificate students. A 
number of students who will also be taking courses would 
be doing it as an elective. A discussion followed re- 
garding the kinds of careers Women's Studies graduates 
might pursue. Trustee Caruso said she could not vote in 
favor of the motion at this time since she was not con- 
vinced it would serve a large enough population to require 
it to be a major. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve the 

Bachelor of Arts degree in Women's Studies 
at the University of Massachusetts at 
Boston as described in Doc. T85-036. 

Trustee Caruso is recorded as opposed to the motion 
and Trustee Zervas abstained from voting. 

Name Changes for the Department of Communication Stu- 
dies and the School of Engineering were then presented. 
Without discussion, it was moved, seconded and 



-4-

VOTED: To recommend that the Board change the name 
of the Department of Communication Studies

And further, 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board change the name 
of the School of Engineering at the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts at Amherst to the 
College of Engineering. (Doc. T85-034) 

The last item on the agenda was Graduation Lists at 
Amherst. It was moved, seconded and 



VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve the 
February, 1985 graduation lists at the 
University of Massachusetts contained in 
Doc. T85-013D, subject to the completion 
of all requirements as certified by the 
Recorder of the Campus.

cellor Hanshaw 

Chairman Troy called the meeting to order at 2:40 p.m 
The first item discussed was Awards of Tenure . 

The recommendations from each of the three campuses 
were received somewhat tardily because there were dif- 
ferences of opinion about the documentation in the tenure 
files. This had since been straightened out. After 
further discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board concur 
with the President in the award of 
tenure to the following individuals: 

University of Massachusetts at Amherst: 
William C. Connor, Associate Professor of 
Chemical Engineering; 

Joseph S. Elkington, Associate Professor 
of Entomology.

Russell K. Schutt, Associate Professor of 
Sociology. 

University of Massachusetts at Worcester: 
Jag Bhawan, Professor of Pathology; 
Melvin R. Pratter, Associate Professor of 
Medicine (Doc. T85-056) 



The Committee then discussed Appointments with Tenure - 
UM/Boston. Provost Greene said these recommendations were 
made with enthusiasm. Professor Lili was eminently quali- 
fied and would fill a slot that had been vacant for two 
years. Professor Eash was a man of similar distinction 
and would also serve as Director of the Institute. It was 
then moved, seconded and 



» 



VOTED : To recommend that the Board concur with 
the President in the appointment of 
Shreedhan Leli as Professor of Engineering 
with tenure and of Maurice J. Eash as Pro- 
fessor with tenure at the Institute for 
Learning and Teaching. (Doc. T85-056) 

The next item was Named Prof essorships - -UM/ Amherst . 
Acting President Smith noted that the President strongly 
supported this recommendation. Provost O'Brien said that 
named chairs were an excellent way to honor professors who 
had served with distinction over an extended period of 
time. Also, the campus was developing a named professor- 
ship policy which would be brought to the Board. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board establish the 
following named chairs at the University 
of Massachusetts at Amherst: 

Philip Bezanson Professorship of Music; 
Germaine Bree Professorship of French 
Wolfgang Paulsen Professorship of German 
Studies ; 
Edward Sapir Professorship of Linguistics. 

Further, to concur in the appointment of the 
following individuals to said chairs: 

Jon C. Humphrey as Bezanson Professor of 
Music ; 

Dennis Porter as Bree Professorship of 
French Studies; 

Sigrid Bauschinger as Paulsen Professor 
of German Studies; 

Emmon Bach as Sapir Professor of Linguistics. 

(Doc. T85-057) 

The next item was Governance Document - -UM/Worcester . 
Provost Kelly said the proposed amendments to the Gov- 
ernance Document of the Medical School reflected the 
recent reorganization of the administrative structure of 
the Medical Center and the evolution in to a health sci- 
ences campus, e.g., the addition of the Graduate School of 
Nursing. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

-2- 



VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 
revisions to the Governance Document of 
the University of Massachusetts Medical 
School contained in Doc. T79-042B. 

The Trustees then considered the proposed Neuroscience 
and Behavior Program --UM/Amherst . Acting President Smith, 
noting his other life as a scientist, said that he sup- 
ported this proposal wholeheartedly because of the quality 
of the program, it was in line with the long-range plans 
of the campus and because of the growing interest in 
neuroscience. 

Provost O'Brien said that the Amherst campus was 
behind the times in neuroscience and the program would 
redress that situation. Professor rite, Chair of the Psy- 
chology department had been instrumental in the develop- 
ment of the interdepartmental program which will include 
her department, and the departments of Zoology, Computer 
and Information Sciences, Microbiology and Biochemistry. 
The proposal is a logical and sensible one. 

Trustee Zervas asked if there would be any relation- 
ship between the program and the Medical School. Provost 
0'3rien said such a relationship was being developed. 

After further discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board establish, 
subject to the concurrence of the Board 
of Regents, the Graduate Program in 
Neuroscience and Behavior at the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts at Amherst as de- 
scribed in Doc. T85-058. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve the 
May, 1985, Graduation Lists of the 
University of Massachusetts, subject to 
the completion of all requirements as 
certified by the Recorder of the Campus.

Chairman Troy called the meeting to order at 2:10 p.m. 
The first item on the agenda was Appointments with Tenure - 
UM/Amherst. 

Provost O'Brien said that both candidates for appoint- 
ment -- Eula Bingham as Professor of Public Health and 
William Highter as Professor of Civil Engineering -- were 
distinguished in their chosen fields. Professor Bingham 
in toxology and the formulation of national health care 
policy. Professor Highter in civil and environmental 
engineering and research. He will also serve as Depart- 
ment Head. After discussion it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board concur with 
the President in the appointment of Dr. 
William H. Highter, as Professor of Civil 
Engineering with tenure and of Dr. Eula 
Bingham as Professor of Public Health 
with tenure at the University of Massachusetts 
at Amherst. (Doc. T85-071) 

The Committee then discussed Postponements of Sabba - 
tical Leave --UM/Amherst . In the course of the dis- 
cussion Provost O'Brien said the possibility of granting 
such postponements be a campus responsibility was being 



explored and would be considered at the next meeting of 
the Committee. It was moved, seconded and 



5 



VOTED : To recommend that the Board postpone for 

one semester the requirement that Professor 
Bronislaw Honigberg return to the Univer- 
sity on completion of his sabbatical leave; 
further, to grant Professor Honigberg a 
leave without pay from September 1, 1985 
through January 26, 1986. (Doc. T85-072) 

And further, 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board postpone for 

one semester the requirement that Professor 
Richard Minear return to the University on 
completion of his sabbatical leave; further, 
to grant Professor Minear a leave of absence 
without pay from January 26, 1986 through 
August 31, 1986. (Doc. T85-072) 

The next item was the proposed Department of Judaic 
and Near Eastern Studies --UM/Amherst . Vice President 
Smith noted that this would be the joining of two existing 
programs which had many common interests into one admini- 
strative and academic unit. Joining the two programs 
would not entail additional costs. After further dis- 
cussion it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board merge the 
Judaic Studies Program and the Near 
Eastern Studies major at the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts at Amherst and 
establish the DeDartment of Judaic and 
Near Eastern Studies as described in 
Doc. T85-070. 

The final action item was a proposal for a Ph.D. Pro - 
gram in Music at the Amherst campus. Vice President Smith 
said that students of music, in essence, fell into two 
classes -- instrumentalists and musicologists, that is, 
those interested in the history and theory of music. The 
target population of the proposed program is the latter. 
While modest, the program would fill a demonstrated need. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve, 

subject to the concurrence of the Board 
of Regents, the Ph.D. in Music at the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst 
as described in Doc. T85-069.

The Trustees then discussed Proposed Department of 
Social Work and Master of Social Work Degree . President 
Knapp said this matter was brought to the Committee be- 
cause of a dilemma -- a well thought-out proposal which 
would answer a demonstrable need versus the demands made 
by existing programs on an already tight budget. 

In the ensuing discussion Ms. Baritz and Professor 
Howards spoke of the need for and support of the pro- 
posal. Provost O'Brien said that if forced to choose 
between a new program and support for existing programs he 
would opt for the latter. Chancellor Corrigan and Provost 
Greene noted that the Boston campus had a Master of Human 
Services program which seemed to be somewhat similar to 
the program proposed by Amherst. 

After a thorough discussion, Chairman Troy suggested 
that the Committee defer action until the next meeting and 
that the Amherst campus provide additional information and 
the Boston campus submit a comparison between the two 
programs. The Trustees agreed to this. 

The next discussion centered on Undergraduate Program 
Reviews --UM/ Amherst . It was noted that this series of 
reviews mandated by the Regents was similar to earlier 
reviews -- praise for the faculty and the curriculum and 
concern over the inadequacies of physical facilities.

Chairman Troy convened the meeting of the Committee on 
Academic and Student Affairs at 2:05 o.m. 

Provost O'Brien introduced the first agenda item, the 
two recommended Appointments with Tenure at the Amherst 
campus. Dr. Rosenberg is currently a full Professor at 
Duke University and is one of the world's leading theo- 
reticians in computer science. His previous experience 
includes sixteen years at IBM, a visitor at New York, 
Yale, and Toronto Universities as well as extraordinarily 
large publication record. Mr. Robin Popplestone currently 
holds a tenured position at the University of Edinburgh 
and although he doesn't have a Ph.D. he has supervised 
numerous Ph.D. candidates in recent years and comes with 
strong recommendations. He is one of the major authori- 
ties in the world on Robotics, which is of great interest 
to the University. 

It was moved, seconded and 



VOTED : To recommend that the Board concur with 

the President in the appointment of Arnold 
Rosenburg and Robin Popplestone as Professors 
of Computer and Information Science with 
tenure at the University of Massachusetts 
at Amherst. (Doc. T85-084 and Doc. T85- 
085) 

Provost Greene presented the Postponement of Return 
from Sabbatical Leave for Professor Frances Malino. 
Professor Malino requested this leave because she has been 
offered a one year residency at Mt . Holyoke College in the 
to-be-established program in Jewish Studies. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board postpone for 
the academic year 1986/87 the requirement 
that Frances Malino return to the Univer- 
sity on completion of her sabbatical 
leave without pav for that vear. (Doc. 
T85-083) 

Dr. Smith presented the Graduation Lists — UM/Amherst 
and UM/3oston. From the 3oston campus there were 620 can- 
didates for undergraduate degrees and Graduate Degrees. 
From the Amherst campus there were 280 undergraduate de- 
gree candidates, 259 graduate degree candidates and 2 
undergraduate degree candidates from the Division of Con- 
tinuing Education. 

After a discussion of the process of submission and 
actual awarding of the degrees to the candidates, it was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED To recommend that the Board approve the 
December, 1985 graduation lists at the 
University of Massachusetts at Boston 
and the Seotember, 1985 revised graduation 
lists at the University of Massachusetts 
at Amherst, subject to the completion of 
all requirements as certified by the Re- 
corder of the campus. (Doc. T85-013E Re- 
vised, Doc. T35-013F) 

Dr. Smith introduced the proposed Master of Social 
Work Program at Amherst. He noted that at the last Com- 
mittee meeting, the position of the Amherst Administration 
was that the development of a Master's of Social Work did 
not fit into the long range plans of the campus. He 
pointed out three facts which were germane to the 



discussion. First, there is a strong Master of Social 
Jfe Work degree program at Smith College. Secondly, there is 
a Master of Social Work program at the University of 
Connecticut which is readily accessible to the residents 
of Western Massachusetts. Finally, the Board of Regents 
has approved the Intent-to-Plan stage of a Master of 
Social Work proposal for Salem State College. 

Provost 0'3rien, commenting for the Amherst campus, 
said the proposal was good but that the recent action by 
the Board of Regents on the budget which severely trimmed 
back a number of programs regarded by the campus as having 
high priority, reinforced the administrative concerns that 
the proposal does not merit sufficient priority to be in 
competition with established urograms. 

Provost Greene commented on the graduate program in 
Human Services at the Boston campus which overlaps but 
does not give the Master of Social Work degree. He noted 
that there are in Boston five separate programs in private 
institutions at Simmons, 3oston College, Boston University 
and a Masters in Human Service Management offered by 
Lesley College and Brandeis University. At the time the 
Boston program was brought to the Board of Regents for 
approval, the deans of Boston University, Boston College 
and Simmons appeared and argued very strenuously against 
f) its implementation. In response to a question about the 
basic difference between the projected Master of Social 
Work and the program offered at Boston, Dr. Griffen, 
Director of the Human Services program at Boston said one 
major difference as they are now defined is that the 
Master of Social work programs tend to be very clinically 
oriented - preparing students to do clinical work or to go 
into therapy. The Boston program prepares students to 
work in a broad range of Human Service agencies and offer 
concentrations in direct service, administration and 
planning for Human Service. The student body comes from 
agencies that serve the homeless, that work with foster 
parents, abused children, alcoholics, drug abuse,, mental 
health and retardation. 

Phyllis Baritz, Acting Director for Development of the 
Master of Social program at the Amherst campus then 
addressed the Committee in support of the program. 

After further discussion, the Committee concurred with 
the recommendation of the Administration to not approve 
the program. 

Dr. Smith then gave a brief report of the activities 
of the Office of Academic Affairs. In addition to acti- 
f vities which come before the Committee, the Academic 

Affairs area advises the President on allocations from the 
Academic Program fund. 



He also mentioned certain university-wide activities which 
the office is involved in. Some examples cited include 
the Public Service Council, the Telecommunications Task 
Force and the Academic Affairs Council. 



There being no further business to come before 
Committee, the meeting adjourned at 3:05 p.m.

of Directors of the Hospital Corporation. After a discussion 
of the composition of the Board of Directors, it was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve the 
following membership of the Board of 
Directors of the Hospital Corporation at 
the University of Massachusetts Medical 
Center: (also known as University Health 
Systems at New England) 

Ex officio members: 

The Vice Chairman of the Board of Trustees 

who shall be Chairman of the Board of 

Directors. 

Three other members of the Board of 

Trustees to be named by the Chairman of 

the Board of Trustees. 



• 



Executive The Chancellor of the University of 

1/4/85 Massachusetts at Worcester and the 

Director of the Teaching Hospital. 
At least three and no more than five 
individuals to serve as directors and 
community -representatives chosen from the 
following list: 

Ronald Texeira Ralph Crowley 
Angela Dorenkamp Arthur Pappas 
Richard Collins 

The next matter considered was the Administrative 
Reorganization at UM/Worcester which would separate the 
Chancellorship and the deanship. The duties of the deanship 
would be expanded to include the current responsibilities of 
Provost. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board eliminate the 
titles Chancellor/Dean and Provost at the 
University of Massachusetts at Worcester 
and to create the titles Chancellor, and 
Dean of the Medical School /Provost of the 
University of Massachusetts at Worcester. 
(Doc. T84-123) 

The last matter of business considered was the Student 
Constitut ion at UM/Boston. Chairman Quinn stated that the 
meeting was scheduled to hear those advocates of both sides. 
Trustee Gomes said that after the last Board of Trustees 
meeting an ad hoc committee was established consisting of 
students. Trustee Gomes distributed copies of an Ad Hoc 
Committee report which had not been reviewed by Chancellor 
Corrigan or the General Counsel. He said the differences were 
that SAC would remain the same, enacted as it was in the old 
constitution, and a change in the distribution of the seats. 
There was a change from 20 to 13 seats in the College of Arts 
and Sciences, 1 graduate seat was added and 7 at-large seats 
were added. He also said the report separated the budgetary 
process of the Student Activities Committee and the Senate 
would no longer have anything to do with the budgetary process. 

A question was raised regarding who prepared the report. 
Another question arose about the specific differences between 
the Ad Hoc Report and the original proposal. David Burns 
responded to those questions by saying that twenty students all 
of whom had participated in the student government sat down at 
three meetings. Notices were posted and some invitations were 
sent. The changes, he said, encompass three things: seven 
at-large seats were created where there were no at large seats, 
the budgetary responsibility was removed from the Senate and 
remains with SAC, reasons for the Senate to exist beyond money 
were created, and standing committees were created to deal with 
academics in the university, extracurricular activities, 
financial arrangements made by the university with outside 
vendors to provide services, etc.

Brian McDevitt, a member of the Chancellor's Governance 
Reform Committee said one of the main reasons why the Committee 
joined the Senate and the Budget and Finance Committee together 
under the original proposal was to have a system of checks and 
balances on the campus. Presently there exists no system and 
there is no recourse. Billy Taylor, a member of the Student 
Activites Committee who also served as a member of the 
Chancellor's Governance Reform Committee said as part of the 
Governance Reform it was felt it would be better to consolidate 
the two different components to strengthen it and hopefully 
have a more democratic process in dealing with monetary and 
policy making decisions at the University. By having a senate 
and centralizing the whole governance structure at the 
University there is a clear avenue for students to go if they 
have a concern that affects the University community. 

Delabarre Sullivan and Richard Bell, students at CPCS, 
spoke in favor of the Ad Hoc Report and maintaining SAC as it 
exists under the old constitution. 

Trustee Gomes asked that the Board look at the Ad Hoc 
Committee Report. 

Trustee Knowles cited a concern about the distribution of 
seats as indicated in the Ad Hoc Report particularly the 
College of Arts and Sciences which has 70% of the headcount in 
terms of students but would receive 30% respresentat ion.

Counsel Searson pointed out that the governance document, 
"the Wellman Document" provides for a single governance group 
for students and the Ad Hoc Report as described provides for 
two.

which funds are received.

Chairman Quinn convened the meeting at 2:15 p.m. 

The first matter of business was the New England Life 
Flight Program. The President in summarizing the recom- 
mendation said that the program had been reviewed on an 
annual basis and there was sufficient evidence citing the 
program as a viable one to recommend that it be put on a 
continuing basis with annual reports from the Chancellor. 
Chancellor Tranquada said the annual growth rate of the 
program was projected at 8%. After a brief discussion of 
the revenues and expenses, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 
continuation of the New England Life 
Flight Program at the University of 
Massachusetts Medical Center; further 
to instruct the Chancellor to submit a 
report on the program to the President 
and the Trustees at the end of each

The next matter for consideration was the minutes and 
meetings of the Hospital Management Board . Chancellor 
Tranquada said the actions included appointments and re- 
appointments, new forms for clinical privileges represent- 
ing and improvement over previous forms, proposed amend- 
ments to the By-Laws, establishment of the Treatment 
Issues Committee and the Physician Weil-Being Committee. 
With reference to the amendments to the By-Laws, Counsel 
Searson pointed out that the final responsibility in re- 
gard to the Hospital rests with the Board of Trustees and 
he suggested amendments to reflect the Board's statutory 
authority. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 
minutes of the March 6, and April 17, 
1985, meetings of the Hospital Manage- 
ment Board, including the January and 
February Unaudited Financial Statements, 
the appointments and reappointments to

the Physician Health Weil-Being Commit- 
tee; further, to amend the proposed

The last items were Resolutions expressing appreci- 
ation to former Trustees Costin and Kurzman. Without dis 
cussion, it was moved, seconded and 

RESOLVED To recommend to the Board 

The many contributions, great and 
small, Thomas Costin made to the 
University and to the Board of 
Trustees during his four years as a 
Trustee will not be forgotten. 

In addition to his service on two com- 
mittees, he was Chairman of the 
Affirmative Action Committee. His 
dedication to the University of 
Massachusetts and his deep commitment 
to the welfare of the young people have 
been exemplary. 

With this resolution the Board ex- 
presses its sincere admiration for and 
gratitude to Tom for his contributions 
to the University and people of 
the Commonwealth. 



RESOLVED: 



During his three years as a Trustee, 
Stanton Kurzman contributed in a very

The Board of Trustees, therefore, ex- 
tends to him on behalf of the people of 
Massachusetts, whose interests it 
serves, sincere and abiding apprecia- 
tion for exceptional performance. 

Chairman Quinn then asked if there were any students 
in the audience from the State Student Association of 
Massachusetts . There were none and there was a discussion 
about SSAM's request to increase the Amherst campus Stu- 
dent Activities fee by $2.00 per year or $1.00 per sem- 
ester. 

Chancellor Duffey said the campus had not submitted a 
recommendation on the fee increase because it was waiting 
for the General Counsel to present an opinion on the legal 
question of whether this constituted an appropriate use of 
trust funds and a resolution from he SGA recommending the 
arrangement . 

It was agreed that this matter be referred to the Com- 
mittee on Budget and Financial Affairs. 

There was no further business to come before the Com- 
mittee and the meeting was adjourned at 3:15 p.m.

Guests : Mr. Donahue, State Student Association of Massachusetts 

In the absence of the Chairman, Trustee Robsham assumed the 
chair and called the meeting to order at 2:20 p.m. 

The first items discussed were Naming of the Pool at the 

Boyden Building at the Amherst Campus and Naming of the Large 

Science Auditorium at the Harbor Campus. There was agreement 

that the individuals involved merited the honor and it was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board name the swimming 
pool in the Boyden Physical Education Build- 
ing at the University of Massachusetts at 
Amherst the Joseph Rogers Swimming Pool in 
honor of Joseph Rogers' forty-four years of 
service to the University and its students 
as the Swimming Coach. (Doc. T85-051) 

And further, 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board rename the Large 
Science Auditorium at the Harbor Campus Sci- 
ence Center the Herbert Lipke Memorial Science 
Auditorium in recognition of Professor 
Lipke' s contribution to the development of 



the biological sciences at the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts at Boston. (Doc. 
T85-050) 

Chairman Quinn entered the room at 2:30 p.m. At his 
urging, Trustee Robsham continued to chair the meeting. 

The Trustees then considered Proserve Corporation -- 
UM/Worcester. Chancellor Tranquada noted that the name of the 
Corporation would have to be changed as "Proserve" was a 
registered trademark. This was being worked on. 

The proposed corporation, he continued, was part of the 
Medical Center's ongoing effort to cope with a national trend 
in the delivery of and payment for medical care. In increasing 
numbers, individuals are turning to health maintenance organi- 
zations and preferred provider plans as their insurers. Sub- 
scribers to these organizations are restricted in their choice 
of physicians to the member-doctors of the organization. For 
this reason the Medical Center, after study, had concluded that 
it would be advisable to become part of this growing trend. 
The agreement with the Fallon Clinic would associate the 
Medical Center with the largest health maintenance organization 
in the Worcester area. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board assist in 

establishing the Corporation, and to 

designate the University of Massachusetts 
Foundation, Inc. as the shareholder of 
record of the University's shares in 
said corporation; provided however, that 
the Chancellor of the Medical Center shall 
exercise the voting rights of said shares, 
all as more fully described in Doc. T85-052A; 
further, to authorize the Chancellor of the 
Medical Center to disburse $150,000 to the 
University of Massachusetts Foundation, 
under the terms and restrictions set forth 
in said document. 

The next item was the fee for the State Student Associ- 
ation of Massachusetts . After thorough discussion it was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To postpone the matter of the Student 

Activities Fee of the State Student Asso- 
ciation of Massachusetts, until the 
September 9, 1985 meeting of the Committee; 
further, to offer counsel for the Student 
Association the opportunity to respond in 

-2- 



f 



writing to Counsel Searson's memorandum 
of July 2, 1985, provided that said re- 
sponse be delivered to the Office of the 
Administrative Secretary no later than 
August 27, 1985. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 
minutes of the May 15, 1985 meeting of 
the Hospital Management Board, including 
the March Unaudited Financial Statement, 
the Appointments and Reappointments to 
the Medical Staff and the FY86 Hospital 
Objectives. (Doc. T85-049) 

Trustee Robsham then asked for a motion to enter executive 
session in order to discuss candidates for Honorary Degrees . 

It was then moved, seconded and, on roll call 

VOTED : To enter executive session. 

The time was 3:45 p.m. 

At 4:10 p.m. the executive session ended and it was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board award honorary 
degrees to those individuals agreed upon 
in executive session and to instruct the 
Chancellor of the Medical Center to proceed 
with the necessary arrangements. 



The meeting then adjourned.

Guests : Mr. Ferrigano, State Student Association of Massa-

Amherst 

Chairman Quinn called the meeting to order at 2:05 p.m. 
The first item on the agenda was State Student Association 
of Massachusetts. 

President Knapp said that he recommended a voluntary 
fee for the Association as a mandatory fee might cause 
legal complications. Chairman Quinn asked the Committee 
members if any of them favored a mandatory fee; no one 
did. After further discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 

levying of a voluntary State Student Asso- 
ciation Student Fee of ^1.00 per semester 
at UM/Amherst on the basis of a negative 
check-off procedure, provided that, if in any 
semester less than fifty per cent of the 
students at the campus elect to make such 
payments, such authorization will cease, 



and provided further, that SSAM shall re- 
imburse the Commonwealth for any expenses 
incurred by the University in collecting 
such payments; all as more fully described 
in Doc. T35-068. 

As a clarification it was noted that the students in 
question were full-time undergraduates. Chairman Quinn 
refused Mr. Ferrigano's request that the Committee 
consider making the fee retroactive to the last semester. 
He said there would be no objection to considering this 
matter at the upcoming Board meeting. 

The next item considered was the Position of Vice 
Chancellor for Planning at the Boston campus. Chancellor 
Corrigan said that the need for such a position had been 
identified some time ago. The position would enable the 
campus to "anticipate next year's problems rather than 
dealing with this month's crisis." After further 
discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board create the 

position of Vice Chancellor for Planning 
at the University of Massachusetts at 
Boston. (Doc. T85-065) 

The Trustees then considered Appointment of Donald 
Babcock . As Mr. Baocock was well known, without dis- 
cussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board concur along 
with the President in the appointment by 
the Chancellor of Donald Babcock as Vice 
Chancellor for Planning at the University 
of Massachusetts at Boston. (Doc. T85-065) 

The next item was Hospital Management 3oard 
Minutes . After a brief discussion, it was moved sec- 
onded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 
minutes of the June 26, 1985 meeting of 
the Hospital Management Board, including 
the April Unaudited Financial Statement, 
the authorization of Jan Wyatt, Hospital 
Administrator, or her designee to execute 
the Certificate of Authority for the Blue 
Cross HA-30 Contract, the Appointments and 
Reappointments to the Medical Staff and to 
approve the Hospital Performance 
Indicators for the period ending March 31, 
1985; 

and further,

To approve the reappointment of Mr. Robert 
Bowditch and the appointment of Mr. 
William Xelleher to the Hospital 
Management Board, each for a three-year 
term to expire in June, 1983. (Doc. 
T85-066) 

The Trustees then considered Opportunites for 
Quality — A Five Year Plan Progress Report. After a 
thorough discussion it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board accept the 

Planning Progress Report of the Five Year 
Plan, Opportunities for Quality, as 
contained in Doc. T33-086, Addendum II, 
and to authorize the President to forward 
said report to the Board of Regents. 

The Chairman then called for a motion to enter 
Executive Session to discuss Honorary Degrees . It was 
moved, seconded and, on roll call, 

VOTED: To enter Executive Session. 

The time was 3:25 p.m. 

At 3:40 p.m. the Committee returned to open 
session. There being no further business the meeting 
was adjourned.

UNI. REL. President Knapp noted that the University-wide Development 
& DEV. Council had held its first meeting on December 20th. At that 
1/9/85 meeting, the group endorsed the five year financial plan of the 
UMass Foundation and the proposal to transfer two 
quas i-endowment funds to the Foundation for purposes of fiscal 
management. Also discussed was the transfer of tangible 
property to the Foundation. Lastly, the Council had 
established two committees — one to draft a goals and mission 
statement for University-wide development, the other, to advise 
on the composition of the Council when the process entered its 
second phase. 

The Committee then discussed Campus Development Activities. 
Speaking for the Amherst campus, Ms. Ling said that the memo 
dated August 6, 1984 from Mr. Darland which had been sent to 
the Trustees, was in response to a concern of Trustee Carlin, 
expressed at the May Board meeting, that there were no figures 
to indicate what return could be expected from the $586,000 
allocated to the Amherst campus for development purposes. Mr. 
Darland 's memo set forth projected figures for the years 
1984-85 through 1986-87 were conservative and showed an 
increase of $789,000 in 1985-86 over 1984-85, and a further 
increase in 1986-87 of $1,523,000. 

To achieve these goals the Development office will make 
staff changes and is implementing a computer system. Ms. 
Hanley then described the system. 

Ms. Mulville described the system at the Boston campus 
noting that the campus had no organized development effort 
until 1984. At present the staff consists of two persons, 
herself as Director of Development and a computer specialist to 
help with alumni records. Efforts were underway to recruit an 
Associate Director of Development and a Director of Alumni 
Affairs . 

In 1984 the first concerted effort to solicit funds other 
than membership fees from alumni was made. 3,300 alumni were 
contacted and $65,000 was pledged, a respectable amount. The 
campus, Ms. Mulville continued, was prepared to approach 
foundations and corporations in FY 85 for grants in the amount 
of $400,000. In addition, during the course of the year a 
deferred giving program would be developed.

& DEV. 

1/9/85 
Mr. Fox then reported for the Worcester campus. He noted 
that the Medical Center faced four problems in the area of 
development. First, the Center's constituency was unaware that 
the Teaching Hospital received no direct aid from the state and 
that only 14% of the University's operating budget was derived 
from state funds. Second, while the Center had the support of 
a dedicated Board of Trustees and an excellent Hospital 
Management Board there was a need for more volunteer leaders. 
Third, the sources of giving — individuals, corporations and 
foundations — need to know more about the quality and the 
magnitude of patient care, education and research at the 
Center. Fourthly, there was a need to apprise people of the 
"industrial" aspects of the campus. The Center provides 4,300 
jobs, a $105,000,000 payroll and the probability of an 
additional 3,000 jobs when the Research Park is operational. 

Without belittling the Medical School, Mr. Fox continued, 
for some time to come the chief source of donors will be former 
patients. There were only 757 graduates of the School, 
many still serving internships, most in debt. Despite this, 
the alumni have a presentable record of giving. Their chief 
form of support will be to tell their patients of the needs of 
the Medical Center, particularly the Hospital, in the hope that 
the patients will become donors. 

Mr. Fox noted that during the period June 1, 1984 to 
January 1, 1985 the Center had received $122,000 in gifts and 
pledges, $11,000 in response to a mail appeal, $18,000 for the 
Alumni Fund and the $2,000,000 Haideck Bequest for the 
establishment of two professorships at the Medical School. 

Mr. Fox said that a five year development plan would soon 
be available which would explain in detail operations of the 
office and projected income. 

The Committee then considered the Transfer of the Joseph P. 
Healey Endowment Fund and the Public Service Endowment Fund 
and the Three Year Plan and the Financial Plan of the 
University of Massachusetts Foundation. After discussion it 
was moved, seconded and

VOTED : To recommend that the Board transfer 

custody of the Joseph P. Healey Endowment 
Fund to the University of Massachusetts 
Foundation. This move changes neither the 
original intention, uses or operation of 
this fund as established in T82-058. The 
general purpose of this fund remains the 
"enhancing of the academic quality of the 
University, primarily through subventions 
to faculty to increase research and 
scholarship potential." 

Fund interest earnings, both realized and 
unrealized totally 7% of the principal at 
the beginning of the fiscal year prior to

Distributions will continue to be made, as 
at present, by the President of the

Chairman Sweeney convened the meeting of the Committee at 
2:10 p.m. In his opening remarks, he said the next priority of 
the Committee was long term planning at the three campuses in 
the area of fund raising. 

President Knapp reviewed the actions which the Board 
approved at its February 27th meeting concerning the transfer 
of two endowment funds to the University of Massachusetts Foun- 
dation and the Foundation's Three Year Plan and Financial 
Plan. He added that the Development Council was developing a 
long range mission and goals statement for the University De- 
velopment Program and a plan to expand the membership of the 
Council. He announced that April 9 and 10 were the dates for 
the Administrative Conference. 

The next item was the Allocation of Funds to the Develop - 
ment Office at Worcester. The request was similar to alloca- 
tions made to Amherst and Boston last May. It was moved, sec- 
onded and 



VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 

plan of the Development Office of the \ 

University of Massachusetts at Worcester, 
and to recommend that the Budget and Fi- 
nancial affairs Committee recommend the 
allocation of $350,000 from the Trustee 
Reserve to the Development Office, 
$144,000 to be allocated in FY1986, 
$112,000 in FY1987, and $94,000 in FY1988, 
all for the purposes set forth in Doc. 
T85-011. 

The next item was to provide for the University of Massa - 
chusetts Foundation to accept gifts on behalf of the Univer- 
sity. Chairman Sweeney asked for an opinion from Counsel 
Searson with respect to the language "all gifts donated to the 
University", and the Foundation's right to hold that property 
and the Board of Trustees right to rescind or modify the vote. 
It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED; To recommend that the Board upon accep- 
tance of this vote by the Board of Gov- 
ernors of the University of Massachusetts 
Foundaton, Inc. ("Foundation"), the Pres- 
ident of the University or his designee is 
hereby authorized to transfer to .the Foun- 
dation and the Foundation is authorized to 
accept on behalf of the University 
directly all gifts donated to the Univer- 
sity of whatever kind, which shall be held 
in trust for the sole purpose of bene- 
fitting the University. The disposition 
of any gifts shall be effected by the 
Foundaton at the direction of the Pres- 
ident or his designee. (Doc. T85-010) 

Further, the Foundation shall forward to 
the President a semi-annual report re- 
garding the status of any such gifts and 
an annual fiscal report following the 
close of its fiscal year, and shall pro- 
vide information regarding such gifts as 
may be requested by the President or his 
designee. 

The Board of Trustees hereby reserves the 
right to rescind or modify this vote at 
any time. 

The next item on the agenda was the Amherst Campus Draft 
Public Relations Plan. Vice Chancellor Ling distributed issues 
of Contact and Newsclips . Newsclips , a new tabloid, is a 

V 

-2- 



sample compilation of some of the best stories that have 
appeared about the University of Massachusetts at Amherst in 
some major newspapers. The main purpose of this new publi- 
cation is internal communication on campus. She then gave a 
summary of accomplishments in the University Relations and 
Development area during the last 18 months including creation 
of an Issues Management Task Force, development of a policy 
regarding protocols on who speaks for the University, increas- 
ing mention of the University in all media, maintaining strong 
ties with journalism interns and alumni, and improving univer- 
sity communications. Future goals include such items as de- 
veloping a high quality slide show, strengthening ties to 
national and regional media, and redesigning the Alumnus . 

Mr. Melley, spoke briefly about the Amherst Campus Draft 
Public Relations Plan and said the Council welcomes comments 
and input on the plan. 

There was a lengthly discussion about the effectiveness of 
utilizing college fairs as student recruitment tools and 
whether there was a need to do more. 

Chancellor Corrigan spoke of the collective strength which 
could come out of being a University and Chairman Sweeney re- 
emphasized the point that the campuses should be one and not 
separate entities. 

Chairman Sweeney asked that Ms. Ruth Levens report back at 
the next meeting on the draft plan, particularly as it related 
to luncheons and the Speaker's Bureau. 

Chairman Sweeney appointed Myrna Baylis, Joyce Hosie, Dan 
Melley and Leo Monahan to a special Committee to discuss the 
feasibility of a University of Massachusetts Bulletin which 
would highlight the strengths of all three campuses. The pub- 
lication would be targeted to alumni, legislators, parents, and 
students as well as other interested parties. The Committee 
was asked to report back in May with its recommendations. 

Vice Chancellor Mulville reported on the status of several 
items including the search process for the position of Director 
of Alumni Affairs and Corporation and Foundations as well as 
recent donations and events which will be forthcoming. 

Chairman Sweeney asked Dr. Ling about the Long Term Capital 
Planning efforts on the Amherst Campus. She indicated that 
there is a Campus Development Council which is drafting de- 
velopment priorities for the campus. She will keep the Com- 
mittee informed in this regard. 

The meeting adjourned at 4:25 p.m. /

Chairman Sweeney called the Committee meeting to order 
at 2:10 p.m. 

He noted that in the Report listing the Institutions 
Endowment and Life Income Fund Assets, which was included 
as part of the agenda and materials, the University was 
ranked 202 with respect to Endowment Funds. He said the 
purpose of the Committee is to change that ranking. 

President Knapp, in his report, commented on two items 
which are in progress, the implementation of the Foun- 
dation Plan and the Development Council. 

The University Relations Program was then discussed. 
As a result of a meeting with the Vice Chancellors and 



staff from the campuses, President Xnapp said that there 
would be a publication series issued three times next year 
which would focus on major university policy issues. The 
audience targeted for distribution of the publication 
would be business leadership, higher education leadership, 
political leadership. He said the group that convened to 
discuss the new publication was clear in its feeling that 
a new publication should not duplicate existing publica- 
tions nor be a compendium of documents available in other 
forms on the campuses. The second item discussed by the 
group was to reinstitute a program of public service 
announcements. The third item was that the Presidents 
Office should develop a series of major events - one or 
two a year - like the Troy Dinner. He announced a tenta- 
tively planned reception in honor of University authors 
and writers on September 20 at the Athenaeum. Pinally, 
the group discussed the need for an opinion and attitude 
survey to help plan the publications to better match audi- 
ences. 

Chairman Sweeney expressed the need for a monthly mag- 
azine highlighting the best of all three campuses. 

Vice Chancellor Ling reported that the Amherst campus 
is currently reviewing its total communications program 
for all alumni and development publications including a 
redesign and review of the content of the Alumnus. During 
a discussion which ensued about the Mass Review, Vice 
Chancellor Ling pointed out to the Committee that the Mass 
Review is housed in Memorial Hall but it is a five college 
publication with the Amherst campus paying only a portion 
of the operating budget. Due to this type of financial 
arrangement, the Review sometimes suffers from inadequate 
resources or a very tight budget. 

Chairman Sweeney asked Dallas Darland to encourage new 
members to join the Alumni perhaps by way of having the 
Mass Review available to them as a year's free subscrip- 
tion. 

Next on the agenda was the University of Massachusetts 
Foundation Report. Mr. Trotman reviewed for the Committee 
the progress on the Foundation Publication, a document 
that will be used in conjunction with campus fundraising 
efforts. It is expected to be available in August. Judge 
Sweeney suggested there be one document a year targeted to 
all Alumni and asked Tom Trotman to report at the next 
meeting about the Foundation's plans over the next twelve 
months . 

-2- 



J 



The next item was the Campus Reports on the "Systems 
Acquisition and Progress on Internal Staffing." MaryEllen 
Hanley from the Development Office at the Amherst campus 
gave a status report addressing the acquisition of the 
alumni hard and soft ware system. The final bids were 
reviewed and it was determined that the bids exceed what 
was planned for the project. The RFP was reissued, bids 
received and evaluated and two vendors have been se- 
lected. A final determination will be made after the 
vendor demonstrations. 

Chairman Sweeney asked that before the award of the 
contract is made that ,the Amherst campus speak with the 
Boston and Worcester people. He expressed the view that 
the system should not be so narrow and sophisticated that 
Boston and Worcester cannot be part of it. 

Chancellor Corrigan in reporting for the Boston campus 
reviewed the staffing changes in the Development Office 
and said the major activity of that office for the next 
few years would be in terms of a single fund raising acti- 
vity having to do with a joint public and private effort 
to build and environmental sciences center on the Boston 
campus. 

Vice Chancellor Fox updated the Committee on hiring 
plans for utilizing the recent funds allocated by the 
Board of Trustees and for the maintenance of a software 
system. He described recent publications and the annual 
report in press. 

The next item was Alumni Affairs . Chairman Sweeney 
introduced the new President-elect of the Alumni Associ- 
ation, Edward Accomando. Ruth Levens gave an overview of 
the Alumni Association goals and need for Alumni Commit- 
tees to support on campus alumni events, student activi- 
ties, and general communication and publication. Judge 
Sweeney expressed, on behalf of the Committee, gratitute 
to Ruth for her efforts as President of the Alumni Asso- 
ciation. 

The last item was Long Term Capital FundRaising. 
Chairman Sweeney distributed questions which he said would 
be the beginning of a long term capital fundraising 
effort. It was agreed that the campuses responses, as 
well as why the campuses are not at the stage where a cap- 
ital campaign is something they ought to be working on, 
would be the major discussion item at a meeting to be 
scheduled in September.

purpose of the Committee and the elements involved in the 
development of a capital fundraising campaign. 

President Knapp then commented on the two special 
events planned by the President's Office. The first 
event, he said, was scheduled for September 20th to honor 
twenty-two University writers who have published works 
within the last two years, have been reviewed nationally 
and have made a contribution to the literature of the 
country. In February 1986, a dinner is planned for Alumni 
in State public service. Honorees will include members of 
the Legislature, constitutional officers and cabinet 
officers. He then spoke of special reports which will be 
published shortly and will deal with the University and 
University partnerships. Three publications to be called

publications will focus on issues of education, public 
service roles within the University, and research

Chairman Knowles called the joint meeting to order at 2:10 
p.m. 

The first order of business was Self-Funding Malpractice 
Insurance — UM/Worcester. Mr. Adams said that the Hospital, 
since its inception, had purchased malpractice coverage from 
the Joint Underwriting Association of Massachusetts. Partly 
because the Hospital is now a more fully developed institution, 
but mainly because of the exorbitant increases in the cost of 
malpractice coverage — over $5,500,000 projected for FY1986, 
more than double what it was in FY1984 — alternative ways of 
providing coverage had been explored. 



Working with staff and outside consultants over the course 
of a year, a proposal had been developed. The proposal was to 
establish a free-standing trust fund which would be funded 
annually at an amount which would be actuarially determined to 
be sufficient to pay claims. For FY86 the fund would be 
$3,900,000 as compared with $5,500,000 for JUA coverage. As 
with JUA coverage, excess insurance would be purchased. 

Another factor, Mr. Adams continued, was a law which lim- 
ited the amount of damages caused by state employees to 
$100,000 for any one incident. As the law was being challenged 
in the courts there was some uncertainty about it. Mr. Searson 
pointed out that the $100,000 limitation was not being 
challenged. The case involved a physician in the Group 
Practice and the question is if he can be sued as an individual 
rather than as a state employee. In response to Trustee Troy's 
question, Ms. Quinlan said that since 1976 there has been 75 
claims brought against the Medical Center. She noted that 
about two-thirds of the claims had been dismissed for lack of 
merit, the other claims are still in litigation. 

Trustee Sweeney said that the proposal seemed to provide 
over-protection to the staff rather than just protection. He 
suggested that the matter be studied further. Trustee Kurzman 
disagreed saying that in the past the projections supplied by 
Vice Chancellor Adams had always been correct. Also, all the 
Board was being asked to do was to authorize the Chancellor to 
get further information and report back to the Trustees. Mr. 
Donaldson noted that the proposal provided the staff with the 
same coverage they had in the past, not additional protection. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board authorize the 

Chancellor of the University of Massachusetts 
at Worcester to issue requests for proposal 
for a fund trustee, a claims management firm, 
and an excess insurance broker pertaining to 
a program of self-funded medical malpractice 
insurance, all as set forth in Doc. T84-007. 
Further approval of the self-insurance plan 
by the Board of Trustees shall be required 
prior to accepting any such proposals or 
entering into any contractual arrangement rel- 
ative thereto. 

This concluded the business of the joint meeting. The time 
was 2:50 p.m.

BFA 
The Committee on Budget and Financial Affairs then dealt 1/30/35 

with the matter of Computer Center Trust Fund — UM/Worcester . 

After discussion it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board establish the 
Computer Center Trust Fund at the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts at Worcester, which 
self-supporting trust fund shall have as 
its purpose the provision of computer re- 
lated services to external organizations 
as related to the primary programs of in- 
struction, research and public service. 
Expenditures will include all operational 
and development costs of the trust, all as 
described in Doc. T85-005. 

The next item was F.M. Dowd Memorial Scholarship Endowment 
Fund — UM/Amherst. 

Chairman Knowles noted that Mr. Dowd had been a classmate 
of his at Amherst, graduating with the Class of 1957. He was 
General Manager of the Semiconductor Division of Raytheon. 
While on vacation in the San Francisco area, he went sailing 
and he and his boat disappeared. His widow is the chief spon- 
sor of the fund. After discussion it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board establish the 
F.M. Dowd Memorial Scholarship Endowment 
Fund at the University of Massachusetts at 
Amherst for the purpose of awarding a scholar- 
ship annually to an entering full-time 
freshman who is the son or daughter of a 
current, permanent employee of the Raytheon 
Company who is majoring in mathematics, any 
of the physical sciences, or any branch of 
engineering; the award shall be in the amount 
of $4,000 derived from the income of the fund 
donated by the Raytheon Company, income in ex- 
cess of $4,000 will be added to the fund, if 
there is a shortfall Raytheon will make up the 
difference. The selection of the scholarship 
recipient will be made by the Department of 
Electrical Engineering at Amherst. All as set 
forth in Doc. T85-006. 

The Committee then discussed the Internal Audit Report. 
Mr. Manigault said that the report was a quarterly report, the 
primary purpose of which was to apprise the Trustees of the 
reports, both internal and external which had been issued dur- 
ing the quarter. The report was abbreviated in scope and 
touched the highlights. The annual report will go into greater 
detail. 



-3- 



XEC/ 

FA c The next item was Quasi-Endowment Funds . Trustee Sweeney 
/30/85 said that the Committee on University Relations and Develop- 
ment, at its last meeting, had agreed to recommend that the 
Board approve the transfer of the Joseph P. Healey endowment 
Fund and the Public Service Endowment Fund to the University of 
Massachusetts Foundation. The purposes of both funds will 
remain the same. The transfer was part of an ongoing effort to 
strengthen the Foundation. 

The final item on the agenda was Building Authority Trust 
Fund Fee . Trustee Keller said that this fee, designed to pay 
off the debt service on buildings, was unusual in that other 
such fees were fees for service. This new fee is assessed to 
all students, whether or not they use the facilities in ques- 
tion. This inequity had caused great concern among the stu- 
dents. 

The students, Trustee Keller continued, felt that this 
inequity could be eliminated with minor changes. For example, 
the residence hall debt service could continue to be paid 
through the residence hall fee. He then asked the students 
present to speak. 

Mr. Patrick said he agreed with Trustee Keller, the debt 
service fee could be collected from those students who use the 
facilities and the inequity would be eliminated. Messrs. Dugal 
and Flynn also concurred. Mr. Flynn pointed out that the fee 
would create particular hardship for sororities and 
fraternities which could lead to their demise. Trustee Kurzman 
said that while the Trustees tried to keep fees as low as 
possible they also had the duty to protect the University as a 
whole. In the case of the Amherst campus, if certain pressing 
maintenance problems were not dealt with, the campus itself 
might not survive. 

Chancellor Duffey said the campus was in bad shape and in a 
situation where everyone has a stake in cleaning and making it 
adequate and safe. He noted that it was similar to living in a 
community where one is taxed for schools when he or she has no 
children. The proposed fee was the most equitable way to 
serve the needs of the whole campus community. 

Trustee Keller asked why the student proposal would not 
accomplish the goals of the across-the-board fee. Mr. 
Littlefield said that 30 percent of occupants of campus housing 
were there voluntarily. This meant the housing managers had to 
be careful about the overall rents and fees charged to make 
sure that they did not drive these occupants away from the 
campus . 

Chancellor Duffey said he had an action item which was not 
on the agenda. A court has ordered the Commonwealth to provide 
different institutional facilities for long-term mentally 



-4- 



EXEC/ 
retarded adults. The state must provide small facilities in BFA 
residential areas where the patients will receive constant 1/30/85 
care. At the request of the state the Amherst campus studied 
various University lots where such a facility could be built 
and had selected one. The reason this item was not on the 
agenda was that the Amherst Board of Selectmen has not yet 
voted on the matter. 

After discussion it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board of Trustees of 
the University of Massachusetts declares as 
surplus real property two (2) parcels of land 
with 200 foot frontage and 250 foot depth lo- 
cated on the Amherst campus along Pleasant 
Street as more fully described on the attached 
plan marked Exhibit A, and delegates to Presi- 
dent David C. Knapp the authority to enter into 
an agreement with the Department of Mental 
Health and the Division of Capital Planning 
and Operations for the purposes of effectuating 
the transfer and future disposition of the 
subject surplus parcels; provided, however, 
that such declaration and agreement shall be 
contingent upon consideration and review of 
recommendations from the Town of Amherst Board 
of Selectmen by the President and upon approval 
of General Counsel, as set forth in Doc. T85-009, 

Chairman Knowles then said he had one last item for con- 
sideration. After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board allocate an 

additional $1,000 from Trust Fund Interest 
to the Amherst campus for the provision of 
bus service to and from Springfield. 

There was no further business to come before the Committee 
and the meeting was adjourned at 4:00 p.m.

The garage project is on-target and a construction starting" 
aate is estimated For September or October with a completion 
date of September, 1986. The RFP's for the claims management 
tirm and the excess insurance broker have been issued, and the 
RFP for the fund trustee will be issued April 1st. All are 
expected to be returned by April 26th, be reviewed by the In- 
surance Task Force, and brought to the Committee at its Mav 
meeting. * 

The Mid-Year Reviews were then discussed. Four areas of 
concern mentioned were (1) that the budget figures 



in the campus presentations assume full funding for collective 
bargaining and non-unit salary increases although state funds 
have yet to be made available, (2) the spending plans are in- 
consistent with the understanding between the State Admini- 
stration and Finance and the Board of Regents to return 3/4's 
of one percent of the budget, (3) a request for supplemental 
funding by the Medical School to restore facilities damaged by 
fire this past fall and to fund emergency chimney repairs for 
the medical center power plant, and (4) the possibility of a 
deficiency at the Boston campus in the Utilities account as a 
result of the shutdown of the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Plant and 
resultant energy cost increases. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve the 
Mid-Year Budget Review of the three cam- 
puses, the President's Office and the 
Institute for Governmental Services con- 
tained in Doc. T85-025 including the 
intersubsidiary transfers and the Medical 
Center's request to seek a supplemental 
appropriation of $969,857 for needed re- 
pairs and the Boston campus' request to 
seek a supplemental appropriation as 
needed to meet a shortfall in the uti- 
lities account. 



The next item on the agenda was New Trust Funds at the 
Amherst Campus. The requested included four new proposed trust 
funds. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board establish the 
Athletic Events Clearing Accounts Trust 
Fund at the University of Massachusetts at 
Amherst, which self-supporting trust fund 
shall have as its purpose the collection 
of revenues from certain Athletic Depart- 
ment events and activities and the payment 
of miscellaneous cost associated with such 
events and activities, all as more fully 
described in Doc. T85-021. 



and, 



VOTED: To recommend that the 3oard establish the 
Auxiliary Enterprises Trust Fund at the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst, 
which self-supporting trust fund will 
supplant the Board Halls, Campus Center, 
Conferences Services and Auxiliary Ser- 
vices and Auxiliary Services Trust Funds; 
further to approve the following Fiscal 
Year 1986 fee schedule for the Boarding 
Halls:

All as set forth in Doc. T85-012 



and further, 



VOTED: 



To recommend that the Board establish the 
Mediation Special Programs Trust Fund at 
the University of Massachusetts at Amherst 
which self-supporting trust fund shall 
have as its purpose the provision of sup- 
port to the Mediation Project, all as set 
forth in Doc. T85-021. 



and, 



VOTED 



To recommend that the Board establish the 
Residential Activity Programs Trust Fund 
at the University of Massachusetts at 
Amherst, which self-supporting trust fund 
shall have as its purpose the development 
of activities which enhance the quality of 
life of students in the residence halls 
and family housing, all as set forth in 
Doc. T85-021. 

There was then discussion on the FY 1986 Trust Fund Budgets 
Vice President MacArthur gave a brief review of the overall 
trust fund budgets including the proposed fee increases. At 
Boston, the Athletic Fee was recommended to be increased by 
$10. At Worcester, it was proposed that the Commencement Fee 
which is assessed to graduating students only and the Equipment 
Maintenance fee assessed to first and second year students only 
both be increased by $5. Without discussion, it was moved, 
seconded and 



VOTED 



To recommend that the Board approve the 
FY86 Revenue-Based Budgets and the fees and 
fee adjustment at the University of Massa- 
chusetts at Boston contained in Doc. 
T85-012B. 



and, 



VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve the 

FY86 Revenue-Based Budget and fees and fee 
adjustments at the University of Massachu- 
setts at Worcester contained in Doc. 
T85-012W. 

Vice President MacArthur continued with a historical per- 
spective of the Authority Fee. He noted the continued concern 
of off campus students that the single fee was unfair to them 

-3- 



because they do not use the facilities being renovated. Mr. 
MacArthur pointed out that 86 percent of the debt service of 
the bond issue applied to the general purpose facilities avai- 
lable to all students and only 14 percent applied to dorms and 
dining. Continuing, he said the net change for off-campus 
students would be an increase of $195 and for on-campus student 
$41. The Campus Center fee would be eliminated and Student 
Activities fees were decreased and the Fine Arts Center and 
University Arts Council fees remain unchanged. He cited the 
comparison in-state tuition, fees and average room and board 
figures which ranked the University of Massachusetts in the 
lowest quartile. He distributed to the Committee (copy of 
which is appended hereto) correspondence from the Building 
Authority concerning the Payment of the debt service. 

Trustee Keller reiterated his long standing concern about 
the fee and its impact on students and introduced Stacy Roth, 
co-president-elect of the Student Government Association who 
spoke about, the "swing space" housing problem which will be 
further aggravated by the acceptance of the proposed fee. 
Trustee Keller asked about the feasibility of discussing the 
option of phasing this fee in over three years. After further 
discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve the 

FY86 Revenue-Based Budgets at the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts at Amherst and the 
fees and fee adjustments contained in Doc. 
T85-012. 

Trustee Keller is recorded as opposed. 

The next item discussed was the Hospital Rates at the Wor- 
cester. Chancellor Tranquada said that since the implementa- 
tion of Chapter 372 the Hospital has had a series of issues 
under discussion with the agencies controlling the Maximum 
Allowable Cost. An agreement has been reached with Blue Cross 
that for fiscal years 82, 83, 84 and 85 the Hospital is en- 
titled to a gross adjustment of over 9 million dollars. For 
prior fiscal years, in excess of two million dollars will be 
collected in arrears. To allow the Hospital to capture some of 
the additional revenues due for the last three months, it is 
requested that the 6% increase proposed for July 1 be effective 
immediately following the Board's approval in April. Rate 
increases for the past two years have been 5% in FY84 and in 
FY85. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board authorize the 
Chancellor of the University of Massachu- 
sets Medical center to increase hospital 
rates by an average of 6% effective April 
1, 1985. (Doc. T85-024) 

The next item considered was an Allocation From Trustee 
Reserve to the University of Massachusetts at Worcester. This 
action was a parallel action to one the Board of Trustees took 
a year ago to provide seed money to the Amherst and Boston 
campuses for the purposes of University Relations and 

-4- 



Development. It was noted for the record that the recommenda- 
tion proposes an allocation of $350,000 with a projected return 
of $10.4 million over the next five years. It was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED: To approve the allocation of $350,000 from 
the Trustee Reserve to the University of 
Massachusetts at Worcester, $144,000 in 
FY86, $112,000 in FY87, and $94,000 in 
FY88, for use by the Campus Development 
Office. (Doc. T85-011) 

The next item considered was the Cardiovascular Center at 
Worcester. This proposal was to renovate 6,000 square feet of 
shell space to consolidate the cardiovascular activities. It 
was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board authorize the 
Chancellor of the University of Massachu- 
setts Medical Center to proceed with the 
construction of a Cardiovascular Center as 
described in Doc. T85-023, with the under- 
standing that the President's prior ap- 
proval shall be required if funds other 
than those internally generated are used 
for the renovations, and the Chancellor 
will so report to the Committee on Budget 
and Financial Affairs. 

The next item was Transfer of Land at Amherst and had been 
referred by the Board of Trustees to the Committee to resolve 
certain details. Since the February 27th Board meeting, the 
Town of Amherst's Board of Selectmen and the Department of 
Mental Health have reached agreement on the use of the land. 
It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board of Trustees of 
the University of Massachusetts declares 
as surplus real property two (2) parcels 
of land on the Amherst campus lying east 
of North Pleasant Street, one of which is 
north of the Wysocki House parcel and is 
approximately 150 fee in frontage by 290 
feet in depth, and the other of which is 
south of the Wysocki House parcel and is 
approximately 150 feet in frontage by 290 
feet in depth, and delegates to the Pres- 
ident the Authority to enter into an 
interagency agreement with the Department 
of Mental Health and the Division of 
Capital Planning and Operations for the 
purposes of effectuating the transfer of 
the subject surplus parcels.

The last item on the agenda was Checking Accounts Abroad 
which would amend a 1970 vote to designate the Treasurer rather 
than an individual. Without discussion, it was moved, seconded 
and 



O 



VOTED: To recommend to the Board that the 

Treasurer of the University be, and hereby 
is authorized to designate signatures for 
Special Program checking accounts both 
here and abroad.

Donahue , SSAM; Mr. Ruddock, Ad Hoc Committee on South 
African Investments 

Chairman Knowles called the meeting to order at 10:10 
a.m. 

The first item discussed was the University Hospital 
Budget . Ms. Wyatt gave a brief overview of the FY' 86 
Budget and said the budget anticipates a surplus of 
$200,000 on gross patient revenues of $108 million. The 
1% increase in gross patient revenues will result from the 
6% rate increase, and a rise in outpatient and Intensive 
Care Unit activity. A change in the Blue Cross 
reimbursement formula will eliminate much of the growth in 
billed revenue, resulting in a 3 ,\% net patient revenue 



h 



increase. Against this slight revenue growth, expenses 
will grow by 3.8%. This will require careful monitoring 

of the payroll as well as increased efficiencies in 
managing supplies and purchased services. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 
FY' 86 Budget of the University Hospital 
as contained in Doc. T85-038. 

The proposal to Self-Fund the Medical Malpractice 
Insurance Program at Worcester was discussed. Chancellor 
Tranquada reviewed the considerations which led the 
Medical Center to pursue studying alternative approaches 
to the medical malpractice program and which have resulted 
in this option. The goals of the Self - Insurance Trust 
will be to protect the University Hospital, the University 
and the individual physicians and students from any 
reasonable risk related to malpractice, to provide 
malpractice liability and general liability, and to seek a 
method of stabilizing costs on a long term basis. 

There was a difference of opinion between General 
Counsel and the outside consultant, Ropes and Gray which 
centered on whether there was a necessity to include an 
indemnification agreement or reference to it in the 
program since there is the asssumption that Chapter 258 
provides adequate coverage for University employees. The 
position of Ropes and Gray was that if Chapter 258 was 
held inapplicable the physicians would be without coverage 

After a lengthly discussion, the Committee approved 
the concept and establishment of the program and requested 
the General Counsel and outside counsel resolve the legal 
issues regarding indemnification. It was moved, seconded 
and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 
establishment of a Self-Funding Medical 
Malpractice and Comprehensive General 
Liability Program at the University of 
Massachusetts Medical Center as set 
forth in Doc. T85-007B; further, to 
approve the Trust Agreement and the 
establishment of a Trust Fund described 
therein to receive and hold contributions 
from the Trustees and to pay claims and 
expenses, as set forth in Doc. T85-007B; 
further, to authorize the deposit of funds 



( 



-2- 



from the Hospital Trust Fund and the Group 
Practice Trust Fund in said Trust Fund; 
further, to select Risk Management Founda- 
tion of Cambridge, MA as the claims manage- 
ment firm, the firm of Johnson and Higgins, 
Inc. of Boston, MA as the broker, and the 
Bank of New England of Boston, MA as the 
Trustee, all of said votes to be effective 
for the fiscal year 1986. 

A proposal to move the Primary Care Center , which has 
clinics in Medicine, Pediatrics , and Geriatrics to a 
nearby new facility was then considered. The move would 
address over-crowded conditions and allow the clinical 
services to bill patients directly. Further, it would 
allow the Center to bring together all of the cancer 
related services to a single physical space in the 
hospital building and lable it the Cancer Center 
concurrent with bringing the Medical Center to the next 
stage in its development. After discussion, it was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board grant 

preliminary approval to the moving of 
the Primary Care Center at the 
University of Massachusetts Medical 
Center to a different facility, 
provided that final approval shall be 
contingent upon further review of the 
impact of the move on the Medical 
Center as a whole. 

A proposal to enter into a License Agreement for the 
lease of office space at 42 Lake Avenue, Worcester was 
then introduced. The space would be used by the staff of 
the Chief Medical Examiner at an annual cost of $16,800, 
and the staff for University Relations at an annual cost 
of $21,250. The Committee discussed the item and it was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board authorize 
the Chancellor of the University of 
Massachusetts at Worcester to sign a 
license agreement with the Lake Avenue 
Trust for the lease of office space at 
42 Lake Avenue, Worcester, Massachusetts. 
(Doc. T85-039) 

Next on the agenda was the establishment of three new, 
self-supporting trust funds for the Amherst Campus. The 



-3- 



COINS Research Computer was proposed as a $375,000 fund to 
provide research computing services related to research 
grants. The Library Trust Fund was proposed as a $60,000 
activity to fund book binding, interlibrary loans, and 
computer search services. The Geotechnical Trust Fund was 
proposed as a $20,000 activity to provide specialized ^ 

geotechnical testing and analysis. It was moved, seconded 
and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board establish the 
COINS Research Computer Trust Fund at the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst, 
which self-supporting trust fund shall 
have as its purpose the provision of 
computer resources to research projects of 
the Department of Computer and Information 
Sciences and its related researchers; 
further, to approve the FY86 budget and 
fees for the trust fund. (Doc. T85-041) 

and , 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board establish the 
Library Trust Fund at the University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst, which self- 
supporting trust fund shall have as its 
purpose the collection of fees for various 
auxiliary operations of the Library which 
cannot be processed through state 
accounts; further, to approve the FY86 
budget and fees for the trust fund. (Doc. 
T85-040) 

and further, 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board establish the 
Geotechnical Trust Fund at the University 
of Massachusetts at Amherst, which 
self-supporting trust fund shall have as 
its purpose the provision of specialized 
geotechnical testing and analysis services 
to agencies outside the University; 
further, to approve the FY86 budget and 
fees for the trust fund. (Doc. T85-044) 

Modifications to the Undergraduate Student Activities 



c 



Trust Fund and the Graduate Student Senate Trust Func . 
Budgets at the Amherst campus to provide funding for the 
Board of Governors and related program activities were 
then considered. The result would be a $7 fee increase 



-L- 



affecting all full-time students at Amherst, bringing the 
Student Activities fee to $88.00 and the Graduate Student 
Senate Fee to $51.00. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve a $7 

increase in the Student Activities Fee and 
in the Graduate Student Senate Fee. (Doc. 
T85-043) 

The Committee then heard presentations by 
representatives of the State Student Association of 
Massachusetts to increase the Amherst campus Student 
Activities fee by $2.00 per year or $1.00 per semester and 
allocate the $40,000 in annual revenues to support the 
operating costs of SSAM. A referendum of students at the 
Amherst campus endorsed the proposal and the student 
senate's position was very supportive. 

Matthew Donahue, President of SSAM, spoke of the 
organization's advocacy and lobbying efforts on behalf of 
public higher education. Michael Ferrigno, the Director 
of the organization, also addressed the Committee. 

There was a lengthly discussion about the proposal and 
there were still unresolved legal issues as to whether a 
transfer of funds would be in conformity with G.L. Chapter 

75. 

The next item discussed was the Continuing Education 
Trust Fund at Boston. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 
FY86 Continuing Education Trust Fund 
Budget at the University of Massachusetts 
at Boston contained in Doc. T85-042. 

Six Scholarship Funds and a modification in the

Investments and the President's recommendation to modify 



-3- 



( 



the University's 1977 investment policy which prohibits 
investing University funds in corporations or businesses 
that operate in South Africa. The changes proposed would 
broaden the prohibition to include companies or lending 
institutions which, either directly or through their 
subsidiaries or affiliates, do business in or with the 
Republic of South Africa. 

John Ruddock, a student at the Amherst campus 
presented the findings of the Ad Hoc Committee on South 
African Investments. The report recommended the 
University divest from Procter § Gamble Corporation, the 
Foxboro Company, J. P. Morgan § Company, and Bankers Trust 
New York Corporation. 

There was considerable discussion of the policy and 
Chairman Quinn moved the motion with the following 
amendment. It was moved and seconded 

To recommend that the Board amend the 
University Investment Policy (Doc. 
T73-093) by striking Section 2a and 
substituing therefore the following: 

Section 2a. The University will not 
invest in any company or lending 
institution nor seek or accept funds or 
grants from any trust, corporation, or 
other entity private or governmental nor 
employ any person who seeks or accepts 
such funds or grants from any such entity 
which, either directly or through its 
subsidiaries or affiliates, does business 
in or with the Republic of South Africa or 
in countries wth similar apartheid racial 
policies . 

The motion was defeated by a vote of 3:2. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board amend the 
University Investment Policy (Doc. 
T73-093) by striking Section 2a and

does business in or with the Republic of 
South Africa or in countries wth similar 
apartheid racial policies. 

Chairman Quinn and Trustee Bell are recorded as 
opposed to the motion. 

There being no further business to come before the 
Committee, the meeting was adjourned at 12:30 p.m.

The next item was Final Approval to Lease 12,800

internal medicine, pediatrics, and geriatrics to a new 
facility. The move will free up space for the Cancer 
Center. After a brief discussion, it was moved, seconded 



and 



VOTED: To recommend that the Board authorize the 

Chancellor of the University of Massachusetts

to house the Primary Care Clinics at an annual 
rental cost of $153,600. (Doc. T85-045A) 

The Fiscal Year 1986 Group Practice Budget was then 
considered. At the request of the Committee, Chancellor 
Tranquada described the Group Practice which is a separate 
Trust Fund established bv statute and affirmed bv the 
3oard of Trustees to provide a means for organizing the 
practice of the physicians who are on the faculty at the 
Medical School. The Group Practice collects the funds 
due the physicians for any practice within the Medical 
School. Those funds are budgeted on an annual basis by 
department with approximately sixty percent of the funds 
allocated toward faculty and support staff and the 
remainder supports indirect costs and programs at the 
Medical School. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the FY86 
Group Practice Plan Budget contained in Doc. 
T8S-053. 

President Knapp then gave a chronology of the FY' 86 
University Budget process. For the current fiscal year, 
he said, the Budget Act was signed by the Governor but the 
allocations per institution have not been reconciled. He 
then presented a general picture of the budget, noting 
that amounts for collective bargaining represent most of 
the increase in the FY86 budget over the FY85 budget. He 
brought to the Committee's attention that the Worcester 
campus suffered severely this year and that a number of 
items at the campuses were not funded which will create 
problems .

Judge Sweeney expressed his dissatisfaction with the 
distribution and said that the Board should indicate its 
concern about the FY86 allocations and hope for FY' 87. It 
was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board authorize the 

President to approve and adopt the policies 
and procedures governing the allocation and 
expenditure of state and non-state funds by 
the University from July 1, 1985, until such 
time as the Board of Trustees adopts the 
Operating Budget for Fiscal Year 1986. 

President Knapp then described the Drocess involved 
in developing the FY87 maintenance base budget and gave an 
overview of the new requests. The new requests for this 
year, he said, identify where there are significant 
problems and what changes the University must make over 
the next five years to become the foremost University in 
the Northeast.

Next item on the agenda was Faculty Overscale Salary 
Posi t ions . President Knapp explained to the Committee 
that at the present time there are two caps on the number 
of overscale positions at the University. There is a 1% 
cap which is historic dating back many years. The other 
cap, 5% of the faculty, was designated to provide for the 
opportunity to hire first rate faculty members at 
overscale salaries and secondly for department heads and

faculty contract and once appointed to a chair must take a 
reduction in salary or be added to the \% pool.

Chairman Knowles convened the meeting at 2:05 p.m. 

The first item on the agenda was the approval of the 
FY36 Operating Budget . President Knapp reviewed the 
breakdown of the FY86 state appropriation by campus. The 
overall increase in state funding for the University was 
9.5% of which 8% was for collective bargaining and salary 
increases. He noted decreases at Worcester and for the 
University Administration which were as a result of ad- 
justments made within the process. He then reviewed the 
total revenue breakdown for FY86 including state and 
federal funding, student fees, sales, gifts and grants and 
other sources. It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve the 

FY86 Operating Budget as set forth in Doc. 
T85-048. 



The next item was the FY87 Budget Request . President 
Knapp reviewed how the budget request was calculated and 
said the request places emphasis on goals to strengthen 
the stock of academic equipment, the libraries, the exist- 
ing core academic programs, to ensure access and support 
to all qualified students, to extend the centers of ex- 
cellence, to protect the investment in the physical plant 
and to balance the non-payroll accounts with faculty needs, 

The Committee, in the course of the discussion, asked 
for a campus by campus breakdown of one-time costs in the 
request. Questions were raised and there was discussion 
about the percentage increase of the total University 
budget over FY86 due to anticipated collective bargaining 
and the number of additional employees anticipated if the 
request were approved. 

It was then moved, seconded 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 
FY87 Budget Request contained in Doc. 
T85-047. 

Trustee Carlin is recorded as opposed to the 
motion. 

President Knapp then gave an overview of the Capital 
Outlay Budget . The last Capital Outlay budget approved 
for the University was FY84 which totalled $32 million to 
fund seventeen University projects. This was the State's 
first capital budget in three years. Since that appro- 
priation, funds have been released for only five of the 
seventeen items. The FY87 request for the University 
totals $63,312,000 sixty-four percent of that request is 
for repair, replacement and renovation of buildings, 
twenty percent is for equipment purchases, eight percent 
is for campus improvement, six percent is for new/ 
additional facilities and two percent is for energy con- 
servation. 

After a discussion of the timetable for capital outlay 
projects, Trustee Carlin moved to instruct the Chairman of 
the Committee to communicate to those concerned parties 
the Committee's discontent and outrage at the process. It 
was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To ask the Chairman of the Committee 

to write to the Secretary of Administration 
and Finance and express the concerns of the 
Committee concerning the capital outlay 
process . 



Trustee Carlin asked to have it read into the minutes 
that by virtue of voting this capital outlay budget that 
it is not implied in any way that the Committee is approv- 
ing requests for future years. 

There was then a discussion of the 250 Stuart Street 
building, the needed repairs to the elevators and the 
liability of the Trustees. It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve the 
~ FY87 Capital Outlay Budget Request con- 
tained in Doc. T85-075. 

The Atlas of Massachusetts was the next item on the 
agenda. There was a discussion of the proposed selling 
price of $40 which was thought to be too low and that it 
should be priced so that the Trustee Reserve would be 
reimbursed. It was also suggested that a Trust Fund be 
established for this purpose. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board establish an 
"Atlas of Massachusetts" account at the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst and 
to approve the allocation to that account 
of $200,000 ($100,000 in FY86 and $100,000 
in FY87) from the Trustee Reserve, pro- 
vided that a price and marketing strategy 
be established with the goal of reimburs- 
ing the Trustee Reserve within three years 
v of the time of publication. (Doc. T85-079) 

Trustee Carlin is recorded as opposed to the motion. 

The next item was a gift of a Parcel of Land from the 
Cape Cod Cranberry Grower's Association. It was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board accept the 
gift of land at East Wareham, Massachu- 
setts from the Cape Cod Cranberry Grower's 
Association as described in Doc. T85-075; 
further, to express to the Association the 
gratitude of the Trustees. 

A Personnel Action at the Amherst Campus was then 
approved. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve an 

overscale salary of $58,000 per year for 
Sheldon B. Akers, Professor of Electrical 



and Computer Engineering at the University 

of Massachusetts at Amherst. (Doc. 
T85-078) 

The next discussion item related to the Use of 
Trust Fund as a loan device for long term loans. The 
Trust Fund Managment Policy provides for loans to be 
made from Trust Funds short term and inter or intra 
campus may be made between trust funds. 

A number of implications were discussed including 
a concern about the regular balances and cash avail- 
able and what happens if a party defaults. Counsel 
Searson spoke about the statutory limitations in terms 
of trust funds and the concept of fiduciary duty. 

It was the sense of the Committee that the 
Treasurer should manage the float and the Committee 
should not be involved in directing the Treasurer 
where to invest. 

Under other business, there was a discussion of 
the accounts receivable and payable at the Medical 
Center and a request for this item to be placed on the 
next agenda for discussion. 

Trustee Bell then brought up an item of parking 
space at the Boston campus for the student trustee. 
Chancellor Corrigan indicated that parking at the 
Boston campus is an extraordinary problem and indi- 
cated that in anticipation of this problem there is a 
free shuttle bus system. 



There being no further business to come before the 
Board, the meeting adjourned at 4:10 p.m. /

Chairman Knowles convened the meeting at 2:10 p.m. 

The first item on the agenda was Liability Insurance . 
Mr. MacArthur reported that the University had renewed a 
policy for Comprehensive General Liability Insurance. The 
new policy specifically excluded liquor liability, water- 
craft exposure, and police professional liability and 
severely reduces coverage for incidential malpractice. 
Efforts were being made to gain additional liability cov- 
erage, but there was concern about the need for protection 
of University employees from personal liability exposure 
when acting within the scope of their employment. 

It was proposed that, until such time as the Univer- 
sity obtains insurance coverage for police, professional 



liability and incidental medical malpractice, the 
University provide indemnity to its employees equivalent 
to the coverage provided under the former comprehensive 
general liability insurance plan. 

There then ensued a discussion of the extent of cov- 
erage and the cost at other New England Universities. 
Trustee Carlin was concerned about how the University 
would satisfy judgment with funds it did not have. 

It was moved, seconded and 



VOTED: To recommend that the Board 



WHEREAS 



certain employees of the University 
of Massachusetts, namely police pro- 
fessionals and allied health professionals on 
the Amherst and Boston campuses, were insured 
under a comprehensive general liability policy 
during the period July 1, 1984 to July 1, 
1985; and 



WHEREAS 



WHEREAS 



said employees no longer have said insurance 
coverage; and 

the Board of Trustees deems it necessary and 
desirable to provide protection to said em- 
ployees ; 



NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED THAT 

1. The University of Massachusetts agrees to 

the extent not prohibited by law to indemnify and hold 
harmless said employees against any and all lia- 
bilities arising out of a claim to the same extent and 
subject to the same terms and conditions as set forth 
in the comprehensive general liability policy in 
effect for the period July 1, 1984 to July 1, 1985. 

2. This indemnification shall apply to said 
police professionals effective December 1, 1985, and 
to said allied health professionals effective August 
1, 1985. 

3. Nothing herein shall be construed to prevent 
the terms of G.L. c. 258 from applying to any claim 
arising hereunder. 

4. The Board of Trustees reserves the right to 
amend or terminate this indemnification upon thirty 
days notice of any such amendment or termination.

ing up to the f

on the detail i

em on the agenda was the Multipurpose 
tlefield gave a chronology of events lead- 
easibility study by the design firm Howard, 
and Bergendoff. The cost estimates based 
n the schematic plan were higher than ori- 
ed. To keep within the $36 million budget, 
$17.6 million in Capital Outlay, the 
tration proposed that the practice and 
e rink, including racketball courts and 
ng for the Stadium be eliminated. 



Don Grinberg, of the design firm, then gave a de- 
tailed presentation of the site and building plans for the 
Multipurpose Arena. Trustee Carlin raised the point that 
the hockey team would not draw a large enough audience to 
warrant the expense of including a hockey rink in the 
Multipurpose Arena and suggested building a separate, 
simple, cost-effective rink that would accommodate about 
2,000 people. 

Chairman Knowles encouraged the Amherst Administration 
to restudy the hockey portion of the main arena and the 
operational cost. 

Trustee Burgess then addressed the issue of priorities 
at the campus and reported that the students had taken a 
referendum and did not feel the multipurpose arena was a 
top priority over the Library, housing and study space. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board

The next item was a proposal to delegate to the Presi- 
dent the authority to approve all Intersubsidiary Trans - 
fers provided' the transfers do not result in a shortfall 
of funds* The current policy requires Trustee approval 
for all intersubsidiary transfers over $20,000 in the Uni- 
versity's main operating accounts. As part of the new 
proposal, a report on fund transfers would be submitted to 
the Committee as part of the Mid-Year Review and at the 
end of the fiscal year. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board authorize the 
President of the University to approve 
... intersubsidiary fund transfers in State 

appropriation accounts provided, however, that 
no such transfer shall result in a deficiency 
in an appropriation account. The President 
shall report any transfers to the Committee on 
Budget and Financial Affairs. (Doc. T85-090) 

Further, to rescind the Board vote of May 10, 
1972 and Trustee Doc. T72-123 relating to fund 
transfers . 

The current Out-Of-State Application Fee of $40 was 
then considered. The fee in FY85 was increased from $25 
to $40. It was noted that since that increase there has 
been and will continue to be a negative impact on appli- 
cations - particularly at the graduate level. Chancellor 
Duffey recommended that the fee be reduced to $25. There 
was further discussion and the Committee asked that addi- 
tional information be supplied prior to the full Board 
meeting. 

In the interest of time, the Treasurer's Report on 
Annual Investments was delayed until the full Board 
meeting. 

President Knapp reported that two of the elevators 
were operating and Frank Keefe, Secretary for Administra- 
tion and Finance, has committed $1 million for elevator 
replacement-. . 

The next item on the agenda was Accounts Payable at 
Worcester. Trustee Carlin said he had originally raised 
the question about the timeliness of payments but was now 
satisfied that significant progress had been made.

Force was working on proposing changes to the curr^it 
policy and efforts were being made to bring a new policy 
to the Committee in January.
